|Title:||Attack of the 50 Foot Botnet|
|Abstract:||The trend toward smaller botnets may be more dangerous in terms of large-scale attacks like distributed denials of service. We examine the possibility of super-botnets, networks of independent botnets that can be coordinated for attacks of unprecedented scale. For an adversary, super-botnets would also be extremely versatile and resistant to countermeasures. Our simulation results shed light on the feasibility and structure of super-botnets and some properties of their command-and-control mechanism. Possible defenses against the threat of super-botnets are suggested.|
