Distributed Denial of Service Attacks in Software-Defined Networking with Cloud Computing - 2015
Although software-outlined networking (SDN) brings numerous edges by decoupling the control plane from the data plane, there's a contradictory relationship between SDN and distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks. On one hand, the capabilities of SDN build it straightforward to detect and to react to DDoS attacks. On the other hand, the separation of the management plane from the data plane of SDN introduces new attacks. Consequently, SDN itself could be a target of DDoS attacks. In this paper, we tend to first discuss the new trends and characteristics of DDoS attacks in cloud computing environments. We tend to show that SDN brings us a replacement probability to defeat DDoS attacks in cloud computing environments, and we have a tendency to summarize good features of SDN in defeating DDoS attacks. Then we tend to review the studies concerning launching DDoS attacks on SDN and therefore the methods against DDoS attacks in SDN. Moreover, we tend to discuss a range of challenges that need to be addressed to mitigate DDoS hooked up in SDN with cloud computing. This work can facilitate perceive how to make full use of SDN's blessings to defeat DDoS attacks in cloud computing environments and the way to stop SDN itself from becoming a victim of DDoS attacks.
