The purpose of this project is to provide the first-ever implementation of a suspected vulnerability to the DDP2P app so that Dr. Silaghi’s research students can understand the impact of a such a major vulnerability and take preventative measures. If the vulnerability is shown to be benign we shall present our findings as such. Our main project goal is to thoroughly research and conduct this case and present our findings.
Dr.Silaghi would like us to research whether a DDOS attack on his network would be possible. We are to do this by creating a false data ID with ASN-1 encoding and sending that to peers on the network. We will then measure the impact of this on bandwidth on the network.
