Short bio

Levente Csikor has recently become a Senior Research Fellow at the NUS-Singtel Cyber Security Research and Development Laboratory, National University of Singapore to work and lead a project called Source Filtering DDoS Defense with Trusted Hardware.

Before coming to Singapore, he has been a Research Fellow since 2018 at the High Speed Networks Laboratory (HSN Lab), Budapest University of Technology and Economics (BME), where he has received his M.Sc. and Ph.D. degree from in 2010 and 2015, respectively. During his career at HSN Lab, he was involved in the EU-funded FP7 Unify project, as well as in several industrial projects carried out between HSN Lab and Ericcson TrafficLab Hungary (ETH).

From 2S/2018, Levente has been a post doctoral research associate at the Information and Networking Technologies Research and Innovation Group (INTRIG), Department of Computer Engineering and Industrial Automation (DCA), School of Electrical and Computer Engineering (FEEC), University of Campinas (Unicamp).

Between 2017 and 2018, he was a research associate at the School of Computing Science, University of Glasgow working on an Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) funded project called Network Measurement as a Service.

His interests have focused on many different aspects of Software-Defined Networking (SDN) and Network Function Virtualization (NFV), in particular, the data plane performance of different software-based network functions, troubleshooting, OpenFlow, P4, orchestration in heavy- and light-weight virtualization environments. Furthermore, he is eager to investigate the multi-layered possibilities of recent programmable data planes (P4) and their possible influence to bring together verticals. Recently, he and his colleagues have discovered an anomalious behaviour in the most popular hypervisor switch, Open vSwitch, which Levente has given a talk on at OVS 2018 Fall Conference. At the same time, he was also invited to VMware to give a more comprehensive overview about this finding.

    abstract = {Efficient and highly available packet classification is fundamental for various security primitives. In this paper, we evaluate whether the de facto Tuple Space Search (TSS) packet classification algorithm used in popular software networking stacks such as the Open vSwitch is robust against low-rate denial-of-service attacks. We present the Tuple Space Explosion (TSE) attack that exploits the fundamental space/time complexity of the TSS algorithm.TSE can degrade the switch performance to 12\% of its full capacity with a very low packet rate (0.7 Mbps) when the target only has simple policies such as, "allow some, but drop others". Worse, an adversary with additional partial knowledge of these policies can virtually bring down the target with the same low attack rate. Interestingly, TSE does not generate any specific traffic patterns but only requires arbitrary headers and payloads which makes it particularly hard to detect.Due to the fundamental complexity characteristics of TSS, unfortunately, there seems to be no complete mitigation to the problem. As a long-term solution, we suggest the use of other algorithms (e.g., HaRP) that are not vulnerable to the TSE attack. As a short-term countermeasure, we propose MFCGuard that carefully manages the tuple space and keeps packet classification fast.},
