I´m developing some dynamic security policies using SDN, one of them consist in how the network should respond to a DDoS attack detection. So, I would like to test my policies but I'm having some problems trying to recreate an attack in a mininet topology.

Is there any documentation about how to simulate a DDoS attack with mininet?


I am not sure which OF controller you are using, but here is a very good research project on this very topic for Floodlight SDN controller. I intend to use this in my own mininet when finished with my current project. Floodlight OpenFlow DDoS
