"Spoofing-resistant Packet Routing for the Internet"


The forgery of source IP addresses, called IP spoofing, is commonly
exploited to launch damaging denial-of-service (DoS) attacks in the
Internet. Currently proposed spoofing prevention approaches either focus
on protecting only the target of such attacks and not the routing fabric
used to forward spoofed packets, or fail under commonly occurring
situations like path asymmetry. We will presents a hop-wise packet
marking approach that equips the routers to drop spoofed packets close to
their origination. Our approach has utmost concern for immediate
deployability and simulations show that it dramatically reduces the amount
of spoofing possible even under partial deployment.
