Hop Integrity in the Internet introduces a new security defense,
hop integrity, that can be used against denial-of-service attacks
in the Internet. If a message that is part of a denial-of-service
attack is originated by an adversarial host in the Internet and if
the message header includes a wrong address for the originating
host (in order to hide the true source of the attack), then the
message will be classified as modified or replayed and will be
discarded by the first router that receives the message in the
A suite of protocols for providing hop integrity in the Internet
is discussed in great detail. In particular, each protocol in the
suite is specified and verified using an abstract and formal
notation called the Secure Protocol Notation. The protocols
- Secure address resolution
- Weak hop integrity
- Strong hop integrity using soft sequence numbers
- Strong hop integrity using hard sequence numbers
Other benefits of hop integrity extend to secure routing, mobile
IP, and IP multicast.
