Distributed emulation in support of large networks
(Monterey, California: Naval Postgraduate School, 2016-06)
Network emulation is a valuable, though potentially resource intensive, method for virtualizing networks for analysis or testing. Though high-powered servers are becoming increasingly accessible, the size and complexity ...
Evaluating the limits of network topology inference via virtualized network emulation
(Monterey, California: Naval Postgraduate School, 2015-06)
The Internet measurement community is beset by a lack of ground truth, or knowledge of the real, underlying network in topology inference experiments. While better tools and methodologies can be developed, quantifying the ...
Fingerprinting reverse proxies using timing analysis of TCP flows
(Monterey, California: Naval Postgraduate School, 2013-09)
Reverse proxy servers are valuable assets to defend outside hosts from seeing the internal network structure upon which the reverse proxy is serving. They are frequently used to protect valuable files, systems, and internal ...
Transport Traffic Analysis for Abusive Infrastructure Characterization
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 2012-09)
This thesis investigates a novel approach to identifying discriminating features of communications involving abusive hosts. The technique uses per-packet TCP header and timing features to identify congestion, flow-control, ...
