Denial of Service Forwarding Anomalies in Bloom Filter

Bloom-filter-based forwarding has been suggested to solve several fundamental problems in the current Internet, such as routing-table growth, multicast scalability issues, and denial-of-service (DoS) attacks by botnets. The proposed protocols are source-routed and include the delivery tree encoded as a Bloom filter in each packet. The network nodes forward packets based on this in-packet information without consulting routing tables and without storing per-flow state. DDoS attacks does not seek to breach data integrity or privacy; they can be conducted without the requirement of identifying vulnerabilities to exploit the application.
