  1. Aggregate-based congestion control for pulse-wave DDoS defense 

    Alcoz A.G.; Strohmeier M.; Lenders V.; et al. (2022)
    SIGCOMM 2022 - Proceedings of the ACM SIGCOMM 2022 Conference
    Pulse-wave DDoS attacks are a new type of volumetric attack formed by short, high-rate traffic pulses. Such attacks target the Achilles' heel of state-of-The-Art DDoS defenses: Their reaction time. By continuously adapting their attack vectors, pulse-wave attacks manage to render existing defenses ineffective. In this paper, we leverage programmable switches to build an in-network DDoS defense effective against pulse-wave attacks. To do ...

  2. FAst in-network GraY failure detection for ISPs 

    Molero E.C.; Vissicchio S.; Vanbever L. (2022)
    SIGCOMM 2022 - Proceedings of the ACM SIGCOMM 2022 Conference
    Avoiding packet loss is crucial for ISPs. Unfortunately, malfunctioning hardware at ISPs can cause long-lasting packet drops, also known as gray failures, which are undetectable by existing monitoring tools. In this paper, we describe the design and implementation of FANcY, an ISP-Targeted system that detects and localizes gray failures quickly and accurately. FANcY complements previous monitoring approaches, which are mainly tailored for ...

  3. Abm: Active buffer management in datacenters 

    Addanki V.; Apostolaki M.; Ghobadi M.; et al. (2022)
    SIGCOMM 2022 - Proceedings of the ACM SIGCOMM 2022 Conference
    Today's network devices share buffer across queues to avoid drops during transient congestion and absorb bursts. As the buffer-per-bandwidth-unit in datacenter decreases, the need for optimal buffer utilization becomes more pressing. Typical devices use a hierarchical packet admission control scheme: First, a Buffer Management (BM) scheme decides the maximum length per queue at the device level and then an Active Queue Management (AQM) ...

  4. Impacts of Grid Structure on PLL-Synchronization Stability of Converter-Integrated Power Systems 

    Huang, Linbin; Xin, Huanhai; Dong, Wei; et al. (2022)
    Small-signal instability of grid-connected power converters may arise when the converters use phase-locked loops (PLLs) to synchronize with a weak grid, i.e., operating in grid-following mode. Commonly, this stability problem (referred to as PLL-synchronization stability in this paper) was studied by employing a single-converter system connected to an infinite bus, which, however, omits the impacts of the power grid structure and the ...

  7. Advanced Skills by Learning Locomotion and Local Navigation End-to-End 

    Rudin, Nikita; Hoeller, David; Bjelonic, Marko; et al. (2022)
    The common approach for local navigation on challenging environments with legged robots requires path planning, path following and locomotion, which usually requires a locomotion control policy that accurately tracks a commanded velocity. However, by breaking down the navigation problem into these sub-tasks, we limit the robot's capabilities since the individual tasks do not consider the full solution space. In this work, we propose to ...

  8. Real-Time Policy Enforcement with Metric First-Order Temporal Logic 

    Hublet, François; Basin, David; Krstić, Srđan (2022)
    Lecture Notes in Computer Science ~ Computer Security – ESORICS 2022
    Correctness and regulatory compliance of today’s software systems are crucial for our safety and security. This can be achieved with policy enforcement: the process of monitoring and possibly modifying system behavior to satisfy a given policy. The enforcer’s capabilities determine which policies are enforceable. We study the enforceability of policies specified in metric first-order temporal logic (MFOTL) with enforcers that can cause ...

  9. Design of longitudinal tunnel lining joints - experimental investigation on partially loaded reinforced concrete blocks 

    Morger, Fabian; Kaufmann, Walter (2022)
    Proceedings of the 14th fib International PhD Symposium in Civil Engineering
    Precast concrete segmental linings are frequently used in modern tunnelling. In such linings, the longitudinal segment joints, transferring the circumferential loads, typically have a reduced contact surface compared to the full segment cross-section and hence, often govern the design. Most current design approaches for longitudinal joints consider either the beneficial effect of the load dispersion or that of a transverse confinement ...

  10. Autonomous Driving - Analysing the Impact of Resilience Engineering Features in Smart Car Interfaces 

    Pasnicu, Otilia; Zimmermann, Verena; Gerber, Nina; et al. (2022)
    MuC '22: Proceedings of Mensch und Computer 2022
    The communication between driver and vehicle plays an important role in the development of car automation. Being able to perform non-driving related tasks in uncritical situations is one of the biggest advantages of autonomous driving in smart cars. Yet, critical situations often require the driver to take over control again, thereby making the design of takeover maneuvers a highly relevant task. Our study thus investigated the impact of ...

    Chandrasekaran S.; Ngo C.; Lueken M.; et al. (2022)
    Current Directions in Biomedical Engineering
    Lyapunov exponent is a promising parameter to ascertain the stability of the human gait. In this work, we use a time-series model based on a second-order delay-system with inertial measurement units placed on the foot and wrist. Stability is analyzed in a localized sense, with the Lyapunov exponent computed in the temporal region between two heel-strike points, which are determined using a peak-detection algorithm. We have attempted to ...

  13. Influence of tracking duration on the privacy of individual mobility graphs 

    Martin, Henry; Wiedemann, Nina; Suel, Esra; et al. (2022)
    Proceedings of the 17th International Conference on Location-Based Services
    Location graphs are a compact representation of individual mobility that can be used as a mobility profile to personalize location-based services. While location graphs are more privacy-preserving than raw tracking data, it was shown that there is still a considerable risk for users to be re-identified by their mobility graph topology. However, it is unclear how this risk depends on the tracking duration. Here, we consider a scenario where ...

  14. To Share or Not to Share: On Location Privacy in IoT Sensor Data 

    Papst, Franz; Stricker, Naomi; Entezari, Rahim; et al. (2022)
    Data sharing is crucial for building large datasets which in return are essential for developing and training accurate models in many contexts including smart cities, agriculture, and medical applications. However, shared data may leak private information, such as personal identifiers or location. Past research provides evidence that solely removing these identifiers through pseudonymization is not enough to ensure data privacy protection, ...

  15. DoCile: Taming Denial-of-Capability Attacks in Inter-Domain Communications 

    Wyss, Marc; Giuliari, Giacomo; Legner, Markus; et al. (2022)
    In recent years, much progress has been made in the field of Internet bandwidth reservation systems. While early designs were neither secure nor scalable, newer proposals promise attack resilience and Internet-wide scalability by using cryptographic access tokens (capabilities) that represent permissions to send at a guaranteed rate. Once a capability-based bandwidth reservation is established, the corresponding traffic is protected from ...

  19. The effective width of cross‐laminated timber rib panels in fire 

    Kleinhenz, Miriam; Frangi, Andrea; Just, Alar (2022)
    The composite structure of cross‐laminated timber rib panels consists of cross‐laminated timber (CLT) plates connected to glued‐laminated timber (glulam) ribs. Full composite action is provided by a rigid connection between the composite components by means of screw‐press gluing. For ribbed cross‐sections, the assumption that the cross‐section remains plane is incorrect. The simple beam theory according to Euler‐Bernoulli is not applicable ...

  20. Robust Control Design for Flexible Guidance of the Aerodynamic Descent of Reusable Launchers 

    Iannelli, Andrea; Gkouletsos, Dimitris; Smith, Roy (2023)
    Rocket reusability is a key-factor for a sustainable and cost-effective future of space missions. Despite successes in this technology, some of the open problems remain an impediment to further development. For example, the descent phase presents important challenges from a guidance and control perspective, because, due to model and environment uncertainty, the optimal re-entry trajectory is often unknown a priori. As a result, the ...
