Xiang, Yang and Zhou, Wanlei 2004, IP spoofing attack and its countermeasures, in From information warfare to information operations: proceedings of the 5th Australian Information Warfare and Security Conference, Edith Cowan University, School of Management Information Systems, We-B Centre, Churchlands, W.A., pp. 52-60.
IP spoofing is a technique used to gain unauthorized access to computers, whereby the intruder sends messages to a computer with an IP address indicating that the message is coming from a trusted host. It causes serious security problem in the cyber world, and is currently exploited widely in the information warfare. This paper at first introduces the IP spoofing attack through examples, technical issues and attacking types. Later its countermeasures are analysed in detail, which include authentication and encription, filtering and IP traceback. In particular, an IP traceback mechanism, Flexible Deterministic Packet Marking (FDPM) is presented. Since the IP spoofing problem can not be solved only by technology, but it also needs social regulation, the legal issues and economic impact are discussed in the later part.
