Distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks typically exhaust bandwidth, processing capacity, or memory of a targeted machine, service or network. Despite enormous efforts in combating DDoS attacks in the past decade, DDoS attacks are still a serious threat to the security of cyberspace. In this talk I shall outline the efforts of my research group in traceback of DDoS attacks. In particular, this talk will concentrate on the following three critical issues related to DDoS attacks: (1) Traceback of DDoS attacks through flexible packet marking; (2) Traceback of DDoS attacks using Entropy Variations; and (3) Dealing with low-rate DDoS attacks and flash crowds. The talk will be based on the following papers:

Professor Wanlei Zhou received B.Eng and M.Eng degrees from Harbin Institute of Technology, Harbin, China in 1982 and 1984, respectively, and a PhD degree from The Australian National University, Canberra, Australia, in 1991, all in Computer Science and Engineering. He also received a DSc degree (a higher Doctorate degree) from Deakin University in 2002. He is currently the Alfred Deakin Professor (the highest honor the University can bestow on a member of academic staff), Chair Professor in Information Technology and Associate Dean (International Research Engagement), Faculty of Science, Engineering and Built Environment, Deakin University. Before joining Deakin University, Professor Zhou served as a lecturer in University of Electronic Science and Technology of China, a system programmer in HP at Massachusetts, USA; a lecturer in Monash University, Melbourne, Australia; and a lecturer in National University of Singapore, Singapore. His research interests include distributed systems, network security, bioinformatics, and e-learning. Professor Zhou has published more than 400 papers in refereed international journals and refereed international conferences proceedings. He has also chaired many international conferences. Professor Zhou is a Senior Member of the IEEE.
