PT16. Artificial Resets

Initial publication L. Hartmann, S. Zillien, S. Wendzel in [1].
Illustration The pattern PT16 Artificial Resets is embedded by a CS that causes a connection reset of third-party nodes, whose connection states are observed by one or more CRs. The pattern is a protocol-aware timing pattern.

So far, the pattern has only been described for an indirect covert channel.
Context Network Covert Timing Channels -> Protocol-aware
Evidence see [1]
Implementation features the first known implementation and is based on the IoT protocol CoAP.
