Our goal in the preparation of this Black Book was to create high-value, high- quality content. . Ixia’s Black Book website at . The Ixia Black Book describes methodologies to verify SDN & OpenFlow functionality and performance so networks perform at their best. At Ixia, we know that the networking industry is constantly moving; we aim to be your technology partner through these ebbs and flows. We hope this Black Book .

By default, all the traffic is untagged. This might cause the attacked host to crash or to stop responding. If there is no SA established, it must create one. A payload naming the cryptographic suite selected by the responder from those offered by blavkbook initiator. List-based approaches often miss such messages.

Land Attack This attack attempts to ‘drive the victim crazy’ by sending it special-crafted TCP packets with the source IP address blaclbook source port number identical to the victim’s IP address and port number. During the last few years, the cumulative number of vulnerabilities has increased dramatically, as shown in Figure 2.

Ensure that you configure the same parameters on the DUT to allow a successful tunnel negotiation.

The most frequent methods include the following: Use discretion in assembling the attacks to be initiated against the servers or DUT, and configure the Destination Hosts appropriately.

All packets are sent to port All this creates incomplete or half-open connections.

Under Target Settings parameters group, set: Select Replace With … action. Click the Next button in the wizard to configure the network specific details.


IxLoad follows the recommendations in RFC Click Test Options and set the following parameters: By default all the traffic is blsckbook. Relying on hundreds to thousands of infected computers that have been previously infected with worms or trojans that blackbok remote control for an attacker, large DDoS attacks can be coordinated.

Figure 4 shows the distribution of known vulnerabilities across the top 10 software vendors, as reported in the X-Force Trends and Risk Report.

Evasion techniques can be divided in several classes, including the following: Security gateways encapsulate and encrypt the original packet. Unless necessary, do not ixja the default MAC ranges.

They spread themselves to other network nodes without any user interaction. Ixia tests products and software at the perimeter and network levels, which will be the subject of this document. Spyware Spyware is a type of hidden malware that collects and forwards user and computer information. For example, a brokerage company might disallow any account number to be sent to a customer, who may be frustrating for the broker and customer.

IKEv1 is vulnerable to DoS attacks attack by causing excessive processing and spoofing access using a forged address. IP packets are broken up into many smaller pieces, making it more difficult to identify. P2P environments are often used to share software, which may be similarly infected.

An additional complication is the ability of hackers to disguise their attack through evasion techniques. Firewalls are also used to limit the types of services that internal computers may access outside the enterprise. Click the Add Chassis button. Evasion Blackbok Security devices have a tough job—operating on large traffic volumes and keeping up with an ever changing set of threats.

Therefore, the strength of the detection engine directly correlates with the detection accuracy. There are several other parameters that can be changed. For a step-by-step workflow, see Appendix A. Objective Determine the impact of network-based attacks on the performance of an application-aware device while processing and forwarding legitimate traffic.


The Teardown interface with user option allows interfaces to be torn down in the ramp-down stage along with the users, assuming that the users terminate gracefully during the ramp-down period.

Test Variables Test Tool Variables Use the following test configuration parameters to repeat the test. The rate at which encrypted connections can be established is particularly important, representing how quickly a network can resume normal operation after an outage.

Another variable is introduced by the type of traffic. Create two networks Network1 and Network2. However, this option can be enabled, generating a new test case for the DUT performance measurement. Set the test objective as Throughput Kbps with a value ofKbps. Setting Multiple Phase2 over Phase1 Before data plane traffic can be transferred, a ‘tunnel’ is created between two security gateways by using a two-phase process.

The initiator port corresponds to the Published Vulnerabilities and Malware PVM test activity that hosts the list of attacks to be executed. One or more of those sources may have been compromised and may insert code that is used to collect and send data to a third party. In this case, the packets need to be fragmented before the IPsec services are applied. Download or upload files, wasting computer storage space and network bandwidth. Trojans Trojans are programs that appear harmless, but hide malicious functions.

The responder tries to match this list against its own list of supported techniques.
