Abstract

Network Denial of Service (DoS) attacks are increasing in frequency, severity and sophistication, making it desirable to measure the resilience of systems to DoS attacks. In this paper, we propose a simulation-based methodology and apply it to attacks on object location services such as DNS. Our results allow us to contrast the DoS resilience of three distinct architectures for object location.
