Emulation versus simulation: a case study of TCP-targeted denial of service attacks
2nd International Conference on Testbeds and Research Infrastructures for the Development of Networks and Communities, 2006. TRIDENTCOM 2006.
In this paper, we investigate the applicability of simulation and emulation for denial of service (DoS) attack experimentation. As a case study, we consider low-rate TCP-targeted DoS attacks. We design constructs and tools for emulation testbeds to achieve a level of control comparable to simulation tools. Through a careful sensitivity analysis, we expose difficulties in obtaining meaningful measurements from the DETER and Emulab testbeds with default system settings, and find dramaticdoi:10.1109/tridnt.2006.1649164 dblp:conf/tridentcom/ChertovFS06 fatcat:kvgujlz54nbgph5yho6doxprqe
