Realizing a Source Authentic Internet

An innate deficiency of the Internet is its susceptibility to IP spoofing. Whereas a router uses a forwarding table to determine where it should send a packet, previous research has found that a router can similarly employ an incoming table to verify where a packet should come from, thereby detecting IP spoofing. Based on a previous protocol for building incoming tables, SAVE, this paper introduces new mechanisms that not only address a critical deficiency of SAVE when it is incrementally deployed (incoming table entries becoming obsolete), but can also push the filtering of spoofing packets towards the SAVE router that is closest to spoofers.
