Abstract. This paper observes different methods for network covert channels constructing and describes the scheme of the packet length covert channel. The countermeasure based on random traffic padding generating is proposed. The capacity of the investigated covert channel is estimated and the relation between parameter of covert channel and counteraction tool is examined. Practical recommendation for using the obtained results are given.
