Stress Testing Traffic to Infer Its Legitimacy

Nick Duffield and Balachander Krishnamurthy, AT&T Labs—Research


Adaptation in the face of performance degradation is the hallmark of well-behaved network traffic. For sufficiently robust applications, we propose distinguishing good from bad traffic on the basis of the response to artificial performance impairments. We explain the basic requirements for our scheme, and show how it could be generically applied at different levels in the protocol stack.
