Denial of Service Attack in the Internet: Agent-Based Intrusion Detection and Reaction

Free registration required

Executive Summary

In the past most of the attacks targeted a single system, in an attempt to disable it or to gain an unauthorized access to the data in the system. Today, the most dangerous threats no longer attack hosts, but rather the network infrastructure: Worms and Distributed Denial of Service (DDOS) attacks launched from botnets are currently a significant threat, and the protection options remain limited. These attacks are currently used to extort the money from service providers for not launching DOS attacks against their sites.
