Cumulative Sum Algorithm for Detecting SYN Flooding Attacks
Source: Cornell University
SYN flooding attacks generate enormous packets by a large number of agents and can easily exhaust the computing and communication resources of a victim within a short period of time. In this paper, the authors propose a lightweight method for detecting SYN flooding attack by non-parametric cumulative sum algorithm. They experiment with real SYN flooding attack data set in order to evaluate their method. The results show that their method can detect SYN flooding attack very well.
