Executive Summary

The Internet based Telephony services (IPTel) are mainly exposed to set of vulnerabilities that inherited from the employed protocols such as TCP/IP and proprietary VoIP protocols. One of the most critical threats in this sensitive environments is considered the Denial of Service (DoS) attacks. The main concern of a mechanism that focuses on detecting such attacks is the potential end-to-end delay between communicating parties. In this paper is described a hash based flooding detection mechanism and evaluated in an experimental test bed architecture. The outcomes demonstrate the potentiality of the mechanism as the end-to-end delay is negligible.
