Adaptive Selective Verification: An Efficient Adaptive Countermeasure to Thwart DoS Attacks


Denial-of-service (DoS) attacks are considered within the province of a shared channel model in which attack rates may be large but are bounded and client request rates vary within fixed bounds. In this setting, it is shown that clients can adapt effectively to an attack by increasing their request rate based on timeout windows to estimate attack rates. The… (More)
