Prevention of DDOS in Optical Burst Switching using Genetic Algorithm


Objective: The work is undertaken to study the effect of DDoS attack on the Optical Burst Switching environment. Burst switching being the future generation of the optical technology is analyzed for different possibilities and counter measures. In this paper, Genetic Algorithm is applied to overcome the attack. Statistical Analysis: The environment is simulated on MATLAB to get a real time environment response. The number of nodes can be any depending upon criterion. The parameters taken are packet delivery, network error and energy. Findings: It has been observed that during attack value of parameters are packet delivery is 1.1 network error is 3800 and energy is 6500 and after applying Genetic Algorithm the performance of network is improved by packet delivery 9.3 network error 3600 and energy consumption lowered to 6300. Applications: Optical Burst Switching can be used as backbone of the future internet. The tremendously increasing demand of internet users need a strong and fast backbone for data to travel and burst switching satisfies this. In various assessments of potential intrusions in modern networks, the flooding-based DDoS attack takes center stage. Denial of Service (DoS) attacks poses a big threat to any electronic society. But, the main purpose of this paper has been to detect and prevent the DDoS flooding attacks in Optical Burst Switching networks using Genetic Algorithm (GA) and analyze their impact using various metrics like packet deliver, network error and energy consumption. In the end countermeasures against the intrusion have been showed up with and without applying an optimization method
