Half-Droptail: Algorithm to Mitigate LDoS Attacks
Low-Rate Denial-of-Service (LDoS) attack was a new type of denial-of-service attack, the queue management algorithm were found valuable to this attack, especially Droptail. In this paper, based on the impacts of the parameter setting of the Droptail on the LDoS attack, we proposed the Half-Droptail algorithm by changing parameter on the queue management algorithm. We made a set simulation of this algorithm, and the results show that the algorithm can effectively improve the defense performance of algorithm itself.
