Abstract

Denial-of-service (DoS) and Distributed Denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks contribute themselves to be the biggest threats to the cloud environment. The current countermeasure to this security issue is given by a dynamically generated client puzzle called the software puzzle, which acts as a real-time solution and requests the client to conduct computationally expensive operations by solving the puzzle before being served with the requests by the server. The normal client-server computations interfere with the software puzzle computations running in the same architecture, affecting the efficiencies of either of them. This research proposal suggests a dedicated server for the software puzzle to execute and communicate with the actual client-server architecture using a communication network with a centralized database. This helps the two servers to perform their computations without being disturbed by either of them, enabling a better resource utilization and a more efficient way of detecting resource inflated DDoS attack.
