The Synassault site was built upon a previous website from Deakin University called the Stupot project. The term Synassault came from an attack tool called Synassault that performed syn flood attacks.
The Stupot project was first established in January of 2009 and it was my first lab to study denial of service attack in their native environment and allow the collection of datasets for research.
The Synassault site is now a progression of the Stupot project that allows me to further this study, place datasets and my new research papers as I go along. I will add as much reference material for researchers and future researchers as time permits me.
My hope that academics and researchers can use this site to help them in their academic and research endeavors.
