In recent years, we have witnessed a new kind of DDoS attack, the burst attack[6, 11], where the attacker launches periodic bursts of traffic overload on online targets. Recent work presents a new kind of Burst attack, the YoYo attack [4] that operates against the auto-scaling mechanism of VMs in the cloud. The periodic bursts of traffic loads cause the auto-scaling mechanism to oscillate between scale-up and scale-down phases. The auto-scaling mechanism translates the flat DDoS attacks into… Expand
