Had started with smiles that care defied
To travel on at his father’s side.

To fill the fiery scroll of wrath;

He soon shall court thy slighted charms;
Though now thy offerings he despise,

Though now he freezes, he soon shall burn,
And be thy victim in his turn.

Then warm the form relentless fate would chill--
Dark lours my night--Oh! give me one embrace!

And drop by vital drop doth bleed his golden ill.

In science:

To reach the victim, attack traffic has to pass through one or more ISP routers; let R be the set of unique routers from some attacker to the victim.
Optimal Filtering of Malicious IP Sources
Each router needs to only solve their own subproblem (37)-(39) independently from the others. A single machine (e.g. the victim’s gateway or a dedicated node) should solve the master problem (40) to iteratively find the prices that coordinate all subproblems.
Optimal Filtering of Malicious IP Sources
This “view” varies considerably among victims.
Optimal Filtering of Malicious IP Sources

Optimal Filtering of Malicious IP Sources
