Denial-of-Service Open Threat Signaling (DOTS) Signal Channel Call Home
                    draft-reddy-dots-home-network-02

Abstract

   This document presents DOTS signal channel Call Home service, which
   enables a DOTS server to initiate a secure connection to a DOTS
   client, and to receive the attack traffic information from the DOTS
   client.  The DOTS server in turn uses the attack traffic information
   to identify the compromised devices launching the outgoing DDOS
   attack and takes appropriate mitigation action.

1.  Introduction

1.1.  The Problem

   The DOTS signal channel protocol [I-D.ietf-dots-signal-channel] is
   used to carry information about a network resource or a network (or a
   part thereof) that is under a Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS)
   attack.  Such information is sent by a DOTS client to one or multiple
   DOTS servers so that appropriate mitigation actions are undertaken on
   traffic deemed suspicious.  Various use cases are discussed in
   [I-D.ietf-dots-use-cases].

   IoT devices are becoming more and more prevalent in home networks,
   and with compute and memory becoming cheaper and cheaper, various
   types of IoT devices become available in the consumer market at
