Title

Technical Papers Parallel Session-II: Detection and mitigation of Denial of Service (DoS) attacks using performance aware Software Defined Networking (SDN)

Abstract/Description

Software Defined Networking (SDN) stands to transmute our modern networks and data centers, opening them up into highly agile frameworks that can be reconfigured depending on the requirement. Denial of Service (DoS) attacks are considered as one of the most destructive attacks. This paper, is about DoS attack detection and mitigation using SDN. DoS attack can minimize the bandwidth utilization, leaving the network unavailable for legitimate traffic. To provide a solution to the problem, concept of performance aware Software Defined Networking is used which involves real time network monitoring using sFlow as a visibility protocol. So, OpenFlow along with sFlow is used as an application to fight DoS attacks. Our analysis and results demonstrate that using this technique, DoS attacks are successfully defended implying that SDN has promising potential to detect and mitigate DoS attacks.
