Attacks Analysis of TCP And UDP Of UNCW-NB15 Dataset

Asghar Ali Shah, Yaser Danial Khan, Muhammad Adeel Ashraf


TCP (Transmission Control Protocol) and UDP (User Datagram Protocol) are the most important protocols in complete protocol architecture.  There are many types of attacks that can block the communication or reduce the performance of a protocol. This study provides a detail analysis of TCP and UDP attacks and their application layer protocols. The authors will also suggest that where the security administrator should focus for providing best security. The old datasets such as KDD99 and NSLKDD has many limitations. This study uses UNSW-NB15 dataset which has recently been generated.
