    Ph.D. Thesis Proposal - Rajat Tandon

    Title: Protecting online services from sophisticated attacks

    Thesis Committee members: Dr. Jelena Mirkovic, Dr. Genevieve Bartlett, Dr. Emilio Ferrara, Dr. Ramesh Govindan, Dr. Chris Kyriakakis, Dr. Barath Raghavan

    Abstract: Online services are often targets of sophisticated attacks, which aim to overwhelm services or steal user data. In this work, we present solutions, which aim to protect services against sophisticated distributed denial-of-service attacks. These solutions can effectively handle attacks that: (1) involve sending requests which resemble legitimate ones, (2) involve exploiting vulnerabilities that exist in different online services, (3) take advantage of the changing trends in network traffic, and (4) often require online services to get help from their ISPs for mitigation, due to the high volumes of attack traffic.
