Amplification-based Attack Models for Discontinuance of Conventional Network Transmissions

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.

Damage Measurement of Collision Attacks on Performance of Wireless Sensor Networks

Wireless sensor networks (WSN) are widely developed to monitor different phenomena in a variety of areas including nature, medical centers, home automation, industrial and military applications. Such development in many different fields, raises important security issues related to the reliability of the WSNs. Due to the resource constrained nature of the WSNs, these networks are the target of many different types of attacks and prone to failure. In this paper, we consider the collision attack. An attempt has been made to measure the impact of the collision attack on the performance of WSNs under variety scenarios performed by the attackers. The main contribution of this paper is to present that although the attack does not consume much energy of the attacker, it can highly disrupt the normal operation of the target sensor networks. The implementation of the proposed attack model has been done by using NS2 network simulator.
