Stealth tracing: Subliminal Traceroute
The defence against ICT attacks requires detection of probes as early as possible. The earlier an attack is discovered, the more time defenders of systems have to take appropriate counter-measures. This article discusses a stealth tracing technique called Subliminal Traceroute and the
development of a software tool that implements this technique. The tool offers detection features, as well as a counter-intelligence feature which tries to pin-point the attacker.
