Paper Abstract

In this paper, we demonstrate the integration of a SiP switching platform to improve real-world Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) defense systems. We demonstrate how DDoS mitigation in the optical domain can be transparent to network and application layers, allowing for reconfiguration and tuning. Additionally, we show how optical domain DoS mitigation provides significant cost reduction-with a 1/3 cost reduction-compared to traditional mitigation using electronic counterparts. Our approach is ideal for data-center deployments, and our testbed topology mirrors a standard data center set up.
