    Tracing DoS attacks that employ source address spoofing is an important and challenging problem. Traditional traceback schemes provide spoofed packets traceback capability either by augmenting the packets with partial path information (i.e., packet marking) or by storing packet digests or signatures at intermediate routers (i.e., packet logging). Such approaches require either a large number of at... View full abstract»

  • SCALLOP: a scalable and load-balanced peer-to-peer lookup protocol

    A number of structured peer-to-peer (P2P) lookup protocols have been proposed recently. A P2P lookup protocol routes a lookup request to its target node in a P2P distributed system. Existing protocols achieve balanced routing traffic among nodes by assuming that lookup requests are evenly targeted at every node. However, when lookup requests concentrate on a few nodes simultaneously, these nodes b... View full abstract»

  • Providing service guarantees in high-speed switching systems with feedback output queuing

    We consider the problem of providing per-customer service guarantees in a high-speed packet switch typically situated at the edge between a set of customers and a service provider network. As basic requirements, the switch should be scalable to high speeds per port, a large number of ports, and a large number of customers (macroflows) with independent guarantees. Existing scalable solutions are ba... View full abstract»

    Software-based active replication is expensive in terms of performance overhead. Multithreading can help improve performance; however, thread scheduling is a source of nondeterminism in replica behavior. To achieve strong replica consistency in multithreaded environments, this paper proposes intercepting mutex lock/unlock operations performed by threads on accessing the shared data and contributes...

  • WDM optical interconnects with recirculating buffering and limited range wavelength conversion

    All-optical communication, in particular, wavelength-division-multiplexing (WDM) technique, has been proposed as a promising candidate to meet the ever-increasing demands on bandwidth from emerging bandwidth-intensive computing/networking applications. However, with current technology, the cost of optical communication, especially the cost of optical buffering and wavelength conversion, remains a ... View full abstract»

    Most of the high-performance routers available commercially these days equip each of their line cards (LCs) with a forwarding engine (FE) to perform table lookups locally. This work introduces and evaluates a technique for speedy packet lookups, called SPAL, in such routers. The BGP routing table under SPAL is fragmented into subsets which constitute forwarding tables for different FEs so that the... View full abstract»
