Abstract(in English) The source IP address of IP packets used for DOS attacks and/or illegal conduct in the Internet is, in most cases, anonymous or a random number. We call it the 'secret IP address to the Internet' in that such IP addresses are not informed in advance to the ISP (Internet service provider) that offers Internet service to the user. This paper provides techniques to enhance the overall security of the Internet! it shows how to block IP packets transferred in the Internet that have secret source IP addresses. To achieve this goal, the authors discuss an Internet whose edge routers accept as input only IP packets with non-secret IP addresses. The routers deal with source IP address and destination address in a symmetrical manner for routing control (symmetric routing). We further consider how to easily switch to the IPv6 address system from the current IPv4 system.
