Internet Protocol trace back is the technology to control Internet frauds. Currently a large number of Distributed-Denial of Service attack incidents make people aware of the importance of the IP trace back technique. IP trace back is the ability to trace the IP packets to their origins. It provides a security system with the ability to find the original sources of the attacking IP packets. IP trace back mechanisms have been researched for years, aiming at finding the sources of IP packets quickly and precisely. In this paper, the authors discuss and practical IP trace back system called Flexible Deterministic Packet Marking which provides a defense system for IP packets and denial service attacks that traverse through the network.
