STORM - Security attack experimentation framework

Distributed attacks are one of the major threats that can cause catastrophic events to network infrastructures. By misusing fundamental network technologies, an attacker can saturate resources on networks and services. System operators of centralized services are challenged to verify their mitigation strategies to prevent damage that are caused by such attacks. We introduce a work-in-progress framework that complies to an operator's requirements and could help to understand the possible outcome of a distributed attack within a network as a controllable and reliable process: The Security attack experimentation framework (STORM).
