Abstract: In this paper, we built up a simulated environment to research the performances of Content Distribution Networks (CDN) under DDoS attack. In order to research how to enhance CDN's ability of resisting DDoS attacks, a mathematical model of websites deployment was built. Based on the mathematical model, we proposed a website deploying algorithm (SD algorithm) which can be used by CDN service providers to make website deployment plans. Experimental results showed that deploying websites under the guidance of SD algorithm can significantly reduce the pressure of servers during DDoS attacks.
Keywords: CDN; DDoS mitigation; website deployment; content distribution networks; simulation; DDoS attacks; distributed denial-of-service; mathematical modelling; website modelling.
