Benchmarks for DDoS Defense Evaluation
Source: Purdue University
While the DETER testbed provides a safe environment and basic tools for security experimentation, researchers face a significant challenge in assembling the testbed pieces and tools into realistic and complete experimental scenarios. In this paper, the authors describe the work on automating experimentation for distributed denial-of-service attacks. They developed the following automation tools: the Experimenter's Workbench that provides a graphical user interface, tools for topology, traffic and monitoring setup and tools for statistics collection, visualization and processing, a DDoS benchmark suite that contains a set of diverse and comprehensive attack scenarios.
