Preventing PC from Spam Zombies using SPOT and RE-ENCRYPTION Methods

G. Sathish Kumar, Dr. G. Gunasekaran


Spamming is a most important threat which is easily spread across various machines over the network, so it is an easiest way to attackers to employ into larger number of machines without any restrictions. To detect the machines which are attacked by the spamming activities are called Spam Zombies. The Sequential Probability Ratio Test is used to detect false positive error rates and false negative error rates, which is based on the principle of SPOT. The protocol which is used to analyze the security of spam zombies followed by the proxy re-encryption mechanism called Onion Routing Protocol. By identifying the spam zombies the performance of the network admin can be increased by Heuristic Search mechanism.
