description of MetroSec

This work has been done in the context of the METROSEC project. The aim of this project was to design mechanisms that jointly provide guaranteed QoS and security despite of ruptures in the traffic due to denial of service attacks. In this context, metrology and signal processing based mechanisms have been proposed to identify the nature of a given rupture particularly those due detect denial of service attacks. As detecting these kinds attacks is not sufficient to maintain a high enough QoS, it was necessary to identify and eliminate the constitutive packets of an attack.

Rainbow in MetroSec

In this context, our role in the project was to propose a solution to identify the source of attack, more specifically the real source of packets responsible of denial of service attacks in order to eliminate them.
