Recently, there has been active research on IP traceback technologies. However, the traceback from an end victim node to an end spoofing host has not yet achieved a high traceback success rate, because of the lack of traceback probes installed on each domain. It is important to understand how to control the IP traceback systems and how many traceback probes should be installed on the Internet to achieve a high traceback success rate. In this research, we consider serial and parallel control schemes for federation of IP traceback systems to recover any failed traceback process. Also, we analyze the traceback success rate, load, and latency of each control scheme to consider the advantage of the control schemes and to determine the number of traceback probes should be installed.
