Most popular simulation and emulation tools use high-level models of forwarding behavior in switches and routers, and give little guidance on setting model parameters such as buffer sizes. Thus, a myriad of papers report results that are highly sensitive to the forwarding model or buffer size used. Incorrect conclusions are often drawn from these results(More)
—In this paper, we investigate the applicability of simulation and emulation for denial of service (DoS) attack experimentation. As a case study, we consider low-rate TCP-targeted DoS attacks. We design constructs and tools for emulation testbeds to achieve a level of control comparable to simulation tools. Through a careful sensitivity analysis, we expose(More)
Distributed virtual environments such as massive multi-player games require multiple servers to balance computational load. This paper investigates the architecture of a unified environment where the virtual online world is not partitioned according to rigid boundaries, but according to an adaptive paradigm. Since it is difficult to develop an optimal load(More)
In this article, we investigate the differences between <i>simulation</i> and <i>emulation</i> when conducting denial of service (DoS) attack experiments. As a case study, we consider low-rate TCP-targeted DoS attacks. We design constructs and tools for emulation testbeds to achieve a level of control comparable to simulation tools. Through a careful(More)
—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, we describe our work on developing a set of sampled and comprehensive benchmark scenarios, and a workbench(More)
Streaming video over the Internet to wireless mobile devices has seen a tremendous increase in popularity amongst users. Recent improvements in infrastructure have made the delivery of video over wireless a reality. However, user demand for high definition video streams promises to quickly devour the bandwidth provided by these improvements. There has been(More)
—Satellite systems are ideal for distributing the same content to a large number of users, as well as providing broadband connectivity in remote areas or backup in case of terrestrial network failures. Unlike terrestrial networks, satellite networks face a unique set of challenges, such as signal fading and interference from multiple transmitters combined(More)
