|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|
|Implementation||https://github.com/NIoSaT/CoAP-Covert-Channels features the first known implementation and is based on the IoT protocol CoAP.
