Kathleen M. Moriarty, MIT

Kathleen Moriarty is the lead Network Security Engineer at MIT Lincoln Laboratory, responsible for overseeing the protection and monitoring of the Laboratory\'s networks and computer systems. She also has experience working as a network and security engineer in both the ISP and financial sectors through previous positions and consulting work. In the financial sector, she previously held the position of Director of Information Security at FactSet Research Systems. Kathleen holds a Masters of Science degree in Computer Science from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute and a Bachelor of Science in Mathematics and Computer Science from Siena College.
Abstract: In the face of security incidents, network providers need to be equipped and ready to assist in tracing traffic flows across provider boundaries to their source. The Real-time Inter-network Defense described in internet-drafts/draft-moriarty-ddos-rid-03.txt is a proposed method to facilitate communication between networks. This approach allows for a variety of methods, existing or future, to be used to trace the packets within a given network domain. Standardization of inter-provider coordination by leveraging existing relationships between operators allows proper feedback and makes it possible for status information for the request to be communicated in a flexible manner.

The results of a small-scale test of the system will be presented. Next steps would include an experiment to test the system at the ISP level, determining the integration necessary for inter-provider coordination and determining its effectiveness for tracebacks.
