The Internet was originally designed to support
universal reachability by allowing any host to communicate with any end server over the globe. Unfortunately, this feature has been abused by attackers to overload the servers with malicious traffic. In order to deal with this situation, many mechanisms such as Firewalls and Access Lists have been introduced to restrict servers’ accessibility only to legitimate users. This paper discusses some of these mechanisms, highlights their pros and cons and then proposes a new mechanism that attempts to limit a server’s reachability based on its operational scope.
