Simulation Models for the Evaluation of Detection and Defense Protocols against Cyber Attacks - Preparation of Doctoral Consortium Contributions

Lorena Paulina Valdiviezo

Abstract

Issues related to Cyber Security aspects, mainly focused on the security of computer systems and the services they offer, have gained considerable importance. The companies and even national governments, are incessantly affected by these issues to ensure the integrity of information systems and data managed through occurring in networked environments. Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) flooding attack is one of the most diffused and effective threat against services and applications running over the Internet, in this sense, the research is primarily aimed at the study (assessment and validation) of hybrid models for detection, defense and response (R) for DDoS attacks, especially in the application layer, and the identification of new strategies. This research is based on modelling and simulating different scenarios using NeSSi2 and ns-3 as network simulation tools.
