Abstract: The concern about cyber security has attracted attention by organizations and public services over the last few years due to the importance of confidentiality, integrity, and availability of services and sensitive data. Many recent episodes of cyber attacks causing strong impact have been performed using extremely simple techniques and taking advantage of the hidden weaknesses of current systems. This article has the main purpose to motivate the academy to mitigate unexpected potential threats from the attackers perspective, exposing the latent weakness of current systems, since the majority of such papers focus only on the defense perspective. We analyze the potential impact of Denial of Service (DoS), a very popular cyber attack that affects the availability of a victim server, through different mechanisms and topologies. Specifically, we simulate and analyze the impact of Distributed DoS (DDoS) using the List and Binary Tree topologies along with Continuous or Pulsating stream of r equests. In order to improve the potential of the analyzed DDoS methods, we also introduce a new technique to protect them against mitigation from security systems. (More)
