Application: Iot blockchain ddos detection and countermeasures (Patent ID: US20240039938A1)

The patent filed by Telefonaktiebolaget LM Ericsson focuses on detecting and addressing Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks using decentralized computing, potentially in combination with blockchain or other decentralized ledger technology. The method involves identifying anomalies in traffic data, reporting anomalies as potential attacks, allocating a dedicated frequency channel to attack traffic, assigning attacking devices to that channel, and recording attack data on a distributed ledger for appropriate response even as devices move. Machine learning is utilized to enhance the analysis of key performance indicators for predicting DDoS attacks.

The patent claims detail a method for responding to DDoS attacks, involving identifying anomalies, allocating dedicated frequency channels, and assigning devices to appropriate channels. It also includes updating records, localizing attacking devices, and utilizing various methods for detecting and correlating attack data with anomalies. Additionally, the patent describes countermeasures, training detection modules, and predicting future attacks based on anomalies. The use of blockchain, smart contracts, and interoperability between devices from different manufacturers is emphasized in the claims for effective response to DDoS attacks in communication networks.
