Detection Of UDP Attacks In Software Defined Networks Using Fuzzy Logic

[Full Text]



Ogunleye G.O., Fasan Oluwabukola



SDN, DDoS, Fuzzy Logic, Attacks



Software Defined Network (SDN) is a new network technology in which the control plane and data plane are separated to make the network more flexible and dynamic. Security is one of the biggest challenges in SDN. Due to the controller which serves as the single point of failure, the network can be easily disrupted by Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attack. The existing detection techniques have concentrated more on other DDoS attacks but focus less on UDP attack. In the proposed work, we examine UDP based DDoS protocol, prototyped Software-Defined network using mininet and POX controller. We further experiment how UDP attack can be performed in SDN, design a fuzzy model using Jfuzzylite library and detect the UDP attack in a software-defined network using fuzzy logic model. The packets are classified into normal and attack packets. Confusion matrix is used to calculate the accuracy of the model.
