Abstract (in Japanese) (See Japanese page) 
(in English) Pulsing Denial-of-Service (PDoS) attacks seriously degrade the
throughput of TCP flow and consequently pose a grave concern to networks.
The fact that they generate less traffic than traditional flood-based
attacks makes PDoS detection more difficult.
Although most of the conventional PDoS detection schemes observe the
periodical pattern of the pulse trains, attackers can easily evade the
detection system by merely controlling the timing of pulse
The bandwidth usage-based detection scheme, which the authors
previously proposed, is robust to the control of attack traffic
by attackers.
However, the conventional method needs high observation cost because
the flow-based traffic analysis is required for reducing false
In this paper, we propose a new bandwidth usage-based detection
method taking into account the burstiness of traffic which is the
principal feature of PDoS attacks.
The proposed method can drastically decrease the number of false
positives without complicated flow-based traffic analysis.
Since the proposed method monitors only aggregated flows, the
observation cost is also reduced as compared with the conventional
Through various simulations, we demonstrate the effectiveness of the
proposed method.
