Denial of Service (DoS) in Internet Protocol (IP) Network and Information Centric Network (ICN): An Impediment to Network Quality of Service (QoS).

This paper compares and analyses the Denial-of-Service attacks in the two different Network architectures. The two architectures are based on different routing approaches: Hop-by-Hop IP routing and source-routing using Bloom filters. In Hop-by-Hop IP routing, the packet header contains the address, and the route is decided node by node. Forwarding in this method requires a node to have a routing table which contains the port through which the packet should traverse depending on the address of the destination. Instead in source-routing, the forwarding identifier is encoded with the path a packet should take and it is placed in the packet header. The forwarding identifier in this approach does not require a forwarding table for look ups like the IP routing; it relies on Line Speed Publish/Subscribe (LIPSIN) forwarding solution that focuses on using named links not nodes or interfaces. The forwarding identifier encompasses a set of Link ID’s which specifies the path to the recipient and they are encoded in a Bloom filter. The In-packet Bloom filters serve as both path selectors and as capabilities, and they are generated dynamically. However, this thesis is going to focus on the latter network technology by looking at both its benefits and drawbacks as well as analysing the possibilities of having a Denial of service attack.
