  • 目前針對分散式資源網路的分散式阻斷攻擊 (DDoS) 已被廣泛研究,這類攻擊者 的目標在於破壞由一台或多台伺服器所提供之正常服務。此類型攻擊於近期興起 的 LTE 網路上,其影響仍為一個懸而未解的問題,即本文主要探討議題。本研究 建立了 4G LTE 實驗平台,針對流量消耗、網路協定及應用軟體各不同類型,實 作現有 DDoS 攻擊,實驗手機為可取得超級使用者 (root) 權限之 Android 手機, 目標網路由開源軟體 OpenAirInterface (OAI) 搭建。此外為有效偵測各攻擊,亦 額外建立監控模組收集攻擊流量封包、執行代碼及樣態,透過最終評估結果可發 現,現有基於 IP 的 DDoS 攻擊在 LTE 網路中可以成功實現,且對 LTE 實驗網 路造成巨大網路流量。

    The infamous distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) cyberattack in which attackers aim to disrupt normal services provided by one or more servers over the Internet based on distributed resources have been deeply investigated. However, the impacts on the recent popular LTE networks remain an open issue and becomes the main target of this paper. We implement the different types of existing DDoS attacks against volume, protocols, and applications in experimental 4G LTE networks. In particular, the attack is developed on the rooted Android mobile phone and the targeted networks build by using OpenAirInterface (OAI) platform. An additional monitoring module is included to capture the packets, payloads, and patterns gen- erated from attacks. The evaluated results show that the existing IP-based DDoS attack can be successfully launched and cause significant amount of traffic volume to the experimental networks.
