By understanding the types of attacks available to an adversary, we can develop more effective defenses against them. A taxonomy of denial-of-service attacks based on a dance-hall metaphor is a step toward gaining such an understanding. This article presents a metaphor for DoS-the dance hall-that helps us toward a comprehensive view of DoS attacks. In this article, "DoS" refers to the set of remote DoS attacks that depend on a network's presence. The article and the taxonomy it presents are the results of a short-term study aiming to explore avenues for defense.
