DDoS Attack Simulation to Validate the Effectiveness of Common and Emerging Threats

Abstract:

Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks are a persistent cyber threat and a growing concern in computer security. This paper seeks to analyse DDoS attacks and the technologies that have been developed in an attempt to combat their effectiveness. This paper includes results from a DDoS simulation using commercial hardware appliances to both demonstrate and measure the effectiveness of DDoS attacks on a targeted victim. The simulation validates the relevance of these hardware appliances in identifying and reducing network vulnerabilities. This paper also provides insight on the current impact of DDoS attacks globally and the threat that these attacks pose in the future.
