Original Abstract

This paper describes a network traffic generator which is based on a container virtualization technology, namely Docker. The aim of the generator is the simulation of TCP/IP layer 7 (L7) traffic and attacks. The main advantages of the proposed solution are its flexibility and extensibility. The integration of a new service is as demanding as installing a service on a classical server. It is also possible to run the generator in a cloud using Docker Swarm mode. Three different web servers and one classic HTTP attack – slowloris are used for demonstration purposes. The output of the generator is a captured traffic in the pcap file format.
