RECHOKe: A Scheme for Detection, Control and Punishment of Malicious Flows in IP Networks
Source: University of Texas at Arlington
To control TCP-friendly flows from non-adaptive sources such as UDP and non-TCP friendly sources, the authors are proposing a new preferential dropping scheme called RECHOKe (REpeatedly CHOose and Keep for responsive flows, REpeatedly CHOose and Kill for unresponsive flows). It aims to improve on proposed schemes such as CHOKe and its variants such as xCHOKe for router buffer management. CHOKe is a buffer management scheme that enables routers in an IP network to control congestion in the case when TCP segments are not the only segments queued.
