Cisco and Verizon successfully conducted the trial of Information-Centric Networking (ICN) technology for simplifying networks and enhancing user experience. The trial was conducted in a lab at Verizon Innovation Center, on Cisco’s open source ICN software, which is built on the technology it built by acquiring PARC division from Xerox last year. The ICN technology uses content-specific (information or data) naming method instead of location identifiers like IP addresses of server hosting the content. ICN helps in adoption process of content delivery to mobile conditions. It supports streaming of video content in a mobile network, with improved viewing experience and reduced bandwidth requirements. The move supports Cisco and Verizon’s aim to find a networking solution which provides more benefits than the standard TCP/IP (transmission control protocol/internet protocol) solutions for mobile video delivery. “The Hybrid-ICN solution delivers all the benefits of ICN communication with…

Researchers from Corero Network Security have discovered a practical ‘kill switch’ that will be able to mitigate the Memcached vulnerability, recently used in causing the record breaking DDoS attacks. They have disclosed the existence of this switch to national security agencies. Corero said that the potential of Memcached vulnerability is more extensive than reported originally, and the attacked servers can be used by hackers to steal or modify the data. This data can be database records, emails, API data, Hadoop information, website customer information, etc. Memcached, the open source memory caching system decreases data access time by storing it in RAM. Since access does not require authentication, it was originally designed to be inaccessible from the internet. The exploit allows attackers to generate fake requests and magnify the attacks creating traffic flood. Currently more than 95,000 servers answer on UDP port 11211, which means all of them are vulnerable to the DDoS…
