Denial of Service

A Denial of Service and Some IPsec-Implementations

ABSTRACT

IP security (IPSec) is in global use for example in corporate Virtual Private Networks. It is also intended for the protection of nodes in the third generation (3G) mobile networks. Denial of Service (DoS) is a threat especially in 3G networks where availability requirements are very strict. This thesis is about identifying those threats and presenting methods for analyzing IPSec implementations and their vulnerabilities to certain Denial of Service attacks.

Denial of Service and Protection of Critical Infrastructure

ABSTRACT

Denial of service attacks generate massive volumes of illegitimate traffic and utilize system resources in a way that renders the system inoperable, thus denying access to authorised personnel. Denial of service attacks can be projected against systems controlling critical information infrastructure and have the potential to be an effective weapon in cyberwarfare. This paper explains the concept of a denial of service attack, discusses the different methods of achieving denial of service and looks at the impact this type of attack may have on critical infrastructure. Although there are no fail-safe ways to protect against denial of service attacks, several means of minimising damage to information systems are discussed.

Cyber Terrorism Awareness within the New Zealand Critical Infrastructure
