本文主要讲的是资源消耗攻击，另一种主要攻击类型是资源消耗攻击。在通过DDoS进行的资源消耗攻击中，攻击者负责发送一个含有不正确信息的数据包。这反过来又与网络资源有关，并导致耗尽系统的资源。这样做的方式是，没有剩余的资源供合法性质的用户使用。Smurf攻击是一种DDoS攻击，利用IP广播的地址向计算机网络广播internet control message protocol (ICMP)数据包的主要数量和被欺骗的目标源IP。本篇代写价格文章由美国论文通AssignmentPass辅导网整理，供大家参考阅读。
Another type of major attack is attack by resource depletion. In the resource depletion attacks through DDoS, the attacker is responsible for sending a packet with malformed information. This, in turn, is tied up with the network resources and results in exhausting the resources of the system. This takes place in such a manner that there are no resources remaining for users of legitimate nature. The Smurf attacks are a DDoS attack wherein the major quantity of internet control message protocol (ICMP) packets along with the spoofed source IP of the intended victim is broadcasted to the network of computer with the use of address of IP broadcast.
It is identified from the research that majority of the devices on network are designed in such a manner that they send a reply to the IP address of source. It is realized that if the amount of devices and machines on the network are large that are receiving and responding to the packets, then the computer of the victim will encounter a flood of traffic. This flood reduced the performance of the computer to an extent that it becomes difficult to function on it. The Smurf attacks can be prevented by the administrators of the networks which imply that reduced number of networks encounters the vulnerability related to the Smurf attacks. It is found that the following configuration of the Cisco router enables the prevention of packets forwarding to the address of broadcast. The configuration is Router (config-if) # no ip directed-broadcast. This example configuration does not protect the network from being a target of the Smurf attack. However, it prevents the participation of the network within the Smurf attack which causes the problem.
