Researchers Develop Software to Stem DDoS Attacks

Researchers at Auburn University claimed to have developed software that can stop DDoS attacks.

The software is able to function without using too much of the memory or processing system of the host computer.

In a paper titled, “Modeling and simulations for Identity-Based Privacy-Protected Access Control Filter (IPCAF) capability to resist massive denial of service attacks,” researchers claim the system can also be used to stop a variety of other attacks, including session hijacking.

The new system cuts down on the amount of memory the host computer needs to expend to determine the legitimacy of requests.

The researchers believe the new system could replace the current IP-address filtering system that can be tricked.
