Distributed denial of service, vulnerable hosts, and wired networks.


Distributed denial of service (DDoS) attack is a coordinated attack, generally performed on a massive scale on the availability of services of a target system or network resources. Owing to the continuous evolution of new attacks and ever-increasing number of vulnerable hosts on the Internet, many DDoS attack detection or prevention mechanisms have been proposed. In this paper, we present a comprehensive survey of DDoS attacks, revealing methods and tools used in wired networks. The paper also highlights open issues, research challenges and possible solutions in this area.
