Denial of Service Strategy Over Outsourced Encrypted Data in Cloud Computing

Authors(2) :-S. Lakshmi Prasanna, P. V. Ramesh

The success of the Cloud Computing paradigm is because of its on-demand, self-service, and pay-by-use nature. According to this paradigm, the results of Denial of Service (DoS) attacks involve not solely the standard of the delivered service, but conjointly the service maintenance prices in terms of resource consumption. Specifically, the longer the detection delay is, the higher the prices to be incurred. Therefore, a specific attention has to be got concealed DoS attacks. They aim at minimizing their visibility, and at identical time, they'll be as harmful as the brute-force attacks. they're refined attacks tailored to leverage the worst-case performance of the target system through specific periodic, pulsing, and low-rate traffic patterns. In this paper, we have a tendency to propose a technique to orchestrate concealed attack patterns, that exhibit a slowly-increasing-intensity trend designed to intercommunicate the utmost monetary value to the cloud customer, whereas respecting the duty size and therefore the service arrival rate obligatory by the detection mechanisms. we describe each how to apply the projected strategy, and its effects on the target system deployed within the cloud.
