New pattern PT16 Artificial Resets

There is a new paper that proposes a pattern PT16 Artificial Resets, which exploits reset messages. The covert channel has so far only been described as an indirect covert channel and can be seen as a special form of PT15 (Artificial Reconnections), where an artificial reset is caused instead of an artificial reconnection. There is a proof-of-concept implementation available for CoAP.

The initial study on this pattern was published at the DETONATOR workshop of EICC'22:

Hartmann L, Zillien S, Wendzel S (2021) Reset- and Reconnection-based Covert Channels in CoAP. In: Proc. European Interdisciplinary Cybersecurity Conference (EICC 2021). ACM, DOI: 10.1145/3487405.3487660

Moreover, there is a new study on pattern PT15 Artificial Reconnections in WiFi networks published in the proceedings of this year's IFIP SEC:

S. Zillien, S. Wendzel: Reconnection-Based Covert Channels in Wireless Networks, in Proc. IFIP SEC 2021, Springer.
