Internet is based on best effort and end to end design principles. Although they are the reasons for the Internet's high efficiency and popularity, they also resulted in many inherent security problems such as the Bandwidth Attacks. There are two main characteristics of bandwidth attack. First, during an attack the incoming traffic rate is much higher than the outgoing traffic rate. Second, the proportion of protocol exploited by the attacker is higher as compare to other protocols in the traffic. Based on these two characteristics, a UDP bandwidth attack detection system based on Protocol Share Based Traffic Rate Analysis (PSBTRA) is proposed. Experiments on real world network shows that this approach can effectively detect UDP bandwidth attacks.
