Optical Internet has become the main conduit for all types of virtually sharing communications around the world as it continues its phenomenal growth of in traffic volumes and reaches using dedicated optical routers. Optical Burst Switching (OBS) is a predominant switching technology for Optical network to cater the huge bandwidth demands and Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) is the prevailing mechanism to support the Internet. Hence TCP over OBS has become standard for Optical Internet. However OBS networks are more vulnerable from security aspects since its control packet header and data burst pass separately through the OBS routers.
