Amplification attacks take advantage of insecurity of different OSI layers. By targeting broadcast address of the victim networks and sending a few packets by the attackers, they force the legitimate user in the victim networks to response to these packets and attack their own trusted networks unknowingly. Despite importance of amplification attacks, there is not any work to implement these attacks to identify their procedure and quantify and compare their impacts on the networks. In this work, we use NS2 to achieve these goals. A variety range of scenarios are designed to implement DDoS amplification attacks and collect the results in terms of different network performance measures. The quantitative results prove devastating impact of the attacks which are easily capable of rendering the target wireless networks disable for their legitimate users.
