The authors present and experimentally evaluate Spread Identity (SI) - a new dynamic network address remapping mechanism that provides anonymity and DDoS defense capabilities for Internet communications. For each session between a source and destination host, the trusted source gateway dynamically and randomly assigns an IP address for the source host from the pool of all routable IP addresses allocated to the source organization (by the IANA). Similarly, in response to a name resolution query from the source gateway, the trusted authoritative DNS server (i.e., the ADNS) for the destination organization dynamically assigns an IP address for the destination host from the pool of all routable IP addresses allocated to the destination organization.
