Abstract


Buffer overflow form one most kind of attacks in restful services, as result from misuse or intentional attack. Therefore client request a resource many times that consume processing time for each request and may cause DOS. In our paper we propose a mechanism to prevent DOS buffer overflow, and limit the authorized token lifetime according to the next expected request time. In addition we apply the study into a real experiment by implementing a web restful API and The results of the test show it is capable of preventing the attack.
