Distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attack has turned into one of the major security threats in recent years. Usually the only solution is to stop the services or shut down the victim and then discard the attack traffic only after the DDoS attack characteristics (such as the destination ports of the attack packets) are known. In this paper, we introduce a(More)
In this paper, we present the design, the implementation details, and the evaluation results of an intrusion detection and defense system for distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attack. The evaluation is conducted using an experimental testbed. The system, known as intrusion detection router (IDR), is deployed on network routers to perform online detection(More)
The collision test is an important statistical test for rejecting poor random number generators. The test simulates the throwing of balls randomly into urns. A problem in applying this test is to determine the number of urns, m, and the number of balls, n, so that the test is among the most powerful possible on a computer. The problem was tackled(More)
