Isolate unauthorized authentication and block data transaction using agile IP traceback

Authors(1) :-R. Lalith Kumar

IP Traceback is a mechanism which is used to identify the origin of the packet on the internet. Since there are no authentications done for any IP address, there are many chances that IP address can be faked and used to perform harmful attacks to any host machines. There are many traceback methods implemented of which few are just used for investigation purpose and some for detection and prevention of these harmful attacks. The attacks are broadly categorized as passive in which only data is watched and active attacks in which the data is modified with purpose to corrupt or destroy the data. Passive attacks are very tough to find but it can be prevented. Active attacks are very tough to avoid but it’s easy to detect. There are two types of service attacks which are Denial of Service (DoS) and Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks. In DoS attacked only one system and one network connection is used to send packets to the system. These packets can be either TCP or UDP. By this way, it is possible to make the system inaccessible and hence all the applications available under the system is blocked. In DDoS attack it uses more number of system and many networks and hence blocks the server connections in a fast manner. Hence there is a need for a very fast processing algorithm to identify and block data transactions. This fast processing can be accomplished by Agile IP Traceback (AIT) which gives much better performance when compared to other algorithms.
