The Effectiveness of the Locationguard Scheme Against DoS Attacks
Server less distributed computing has received significant attention from both the business and the investigate society. Among the most popular applications are the wide-area network file systems, exemplified by CFS, Farsite, and Ocean Store. These file systems store files on a large collection of untrusted nodes that form an overlay network. They use cryptographic techniques to maintain file confidentiality and integrity from malicious nodes. Unfortunately, cryptographic techniques cannot protect a file holder from a Denial-of-Service (DoS) attack or a host compromise attack.
