Implementation of a Secured System With Roaming Server and Roaming Ports
The main goal of this paper is to design and implement a secured system against Server hijacking, which leads to Denial of Service (DoS) attacks. This system uses more than one server for providing security. But only one server will be active at a time. The inactive servers act as Roaming Honeypots. The source address of any request that hits a honeypot is recorded and all its future requests are dropped. Thus this system acts as an Intrusion Detection System (IDS). It is impossible to identify the active servers and the honeypots at a given moment even if attackers obtain the identities of all servers.
