Multi-domain DDoS Mitigation Based on Blockchains

  title={Multi-domain DDoS Mitigation Based on Blockchains},
  author={Bruno Bastos Rodrigues and Thomas M. Bocek and Burkhard Stiller},
The exponential increase of the traffic volume makes Distributed Denial-of-Service (DDoS) attacks a top security threat to service providers. Existing DDoS defense mechanisms lack resources and flexibility to cope with attacks by themselves, and by utilizing other’s companies resources, the burden of the mitigation can be shared. Technologies as blockchain and smart contracts allow distributing attack information across multiple domains, while SDN (Software-Defined Networking) and NFV (Network… 
DoS Attacks on Blockchain Ecosystem
Ten entities in the blockchain ecosystem are identified and the DoS attacks on them are scrutinized and a DoS mitigation technique by the use of verifiable delay function (VDF) is proposed.
The role of Blockchain in DDoS attacks mitigation: techniques, open challenges and future directions
This paper reviews and categorizes the existed state-of-the-art DDoS mitigation solutions based on blockchain technology and believes that this paper could serve as a starting point and reference resource for future researchers working on denial of service attacks detection and mitigation using blockchain technology.
Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) Mitigation Using Blockchain - A Comprehensive Insight
This survey discusses different approaches for DDoS mitigation using blockchain in varied domains to date, high-lighting all necessary details, strengths, challenges and limitations of different approaches.
Mitigating distributed denial of service attack: Blockchain and software‐defined networking based approach, network model with future research challenges
Three different network architectures for the protection of DDOS attack are proposed by enabling Blockchain technology with SDN concept, which helps in developing a mitigating architecture with their collaborative approach.
DDoS Prevention on Distributed application using Blockchain Smart Contracts and Machine Learning
It is stated that web applications can be prevented from DDoS attack by using a layered architecture based on blockchain and deep learning, and accuracy of detection and performance is analyzed using live traffic traces from a variety of network environments ranging from points in the core of the network to those in an edge network.
A Blockchain-Based Collocation Storage Architecture for Data Security Process Platform of WSN
This work proposes a blockchain-based distributed collocation storage architecture for data security process platform of WSN with consensus protocol and asymmetric signature scheme and the security and efficiency are verified on the simulation to enable blockchain as a good solution.
A Hypergraph-Based Blockchain Model and Application in Internet of Things-Enabled Smart Homes
A blockchain model based on hypergraphs that uses the hyperedge as the organization of storage nodes and converts the entire networked data storage into part network storage to reduce the storage consumption and to solve the additional security issues.
Proof of networking: Can blockchains boost the next generation of distributed networks?
This paper exposes how blockchains can solve many problems which so far hindered the diffusion of bottom-up distributed networks, and discusses its potential avails.
BARRETT BlockchAin Regulated REmote aTTestation
This paper proposes the BARRETT architecture which uses a Public Ethereum Network (PEN) in conjunction with an RA protocol to protect the prover from CDoS attacks, and deters CDoS by forcing the verifier to pay a fee in Ether cryptocurrency every time they wish to send an Attestation Request to a prover.
Blockchain Capabilities in Defending Advanced Persistent Threats Using Correlation Technique and Hidden Markov Models (HMM)
This chapter explores Blockchain distributed technology and its applicability towards cybersecurity defence and explores a new system in defence against APT attacks called Blockchain Advanced Persistent Threat Correlation Detection System (Orion System), implemented as chaincode micro-smart contracts.


CoFence: A collaborative DDoS defence using network function virtualization
CoFence is proposed — a DDoS defense mechanism which facilitates a collaboration framework among NFV-based peer domain networks which allows domain networks to help each others handle large volumes of DDoS attacks through resource sharing.
Towards Autonomic DDoS Mitigation using Software Defined Networking
A distributed collaborative framework that allows the customers to request DDoS mitigation service from ISPs and demonstrates that SDN has promising potential to enable autonomic mitigation of DDoS attacks, as well as other large-scale attacks.
