ABSTRACT
The article discusses on the ongoing challenge in networking which is the struggle against distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks. Unlike the similarly-named denial of service (DoS) attack, a distributed DOS attack usually includes traffic generated by large numbers of host computers. These hosts may be in multiple geographic regions, and often are served by multiple ISPs. The intent of these attacks is to overwhelm Internet sites with so many packets that they lose connectivity, disrupting operations and potentially causing large financial losses.
