Abstract

In this paper one type of the security problem of DoS (Denial of Service) is studied and transformed to check the robustness of a multiple components system. The network components like attackers, normal clients and the network devices are modeled as implementations of the testing system. And by evaluating the system’s robustness, the potential design defects can be detected. The methods on robustness testing of multiple components are studied, and a new model of Glued-IOLTS (Labelled Transition System) is given for defining this kind of multiple and networked system. Then a new approach and algorithm are given for generating the robustness test cases automatically.
