Mayday: Distributed Filtering for Internet Services

  title={Mayday: Distributed Filtering for Internet Services},
  author={David G. Andersen},
  booktitle={USENIX Symposium on Internet Technologies and Systems},
Mayday is an architecture that combines overlay networks with lightweight packet filtering to defend against denial of service attacks. The overlay nodes perform client authentication and protocol verification, and then relay the requests to a protected server. The server is protected from outside attack by simple packet filtering rules that can be efficiently deployed even in backbone routers. Mayday generalizes earlier work on Secure Overlay Services. Mayday improves upon this prior work by… CONTINUE READING
