Theoretical Methodology for Detecting ICMP Reflected Attacks: SMURF Attacks

There are plenty of different ways to track the original source of a DoS attack, but those techniques are not efficient enough to track a reflected ICMP attack. When I say “reflected ICMP attack,” that means a SMURF attack. Here I am going to show you a new model to trackback the reflective DOS attack caused by ICMP packets.This is a very efficient method, because you can do this with the help of a really few attack packets. We have seen that, to detect ICMP attacks in direct attack, we need a large amount of packets to be revised, which is not true in this case.
