Flow Control Packet Marking Scheme is a tracing technique, to identify the sources of Distributed Denial of Service (DDOS) attacks. DDOS attacks reduce the quality of the system. While a number of other tracing techniques exist, Flow Control Packet Marking Scheme can obtain better tracing capability than the others. FCPM marks the packets based on the flow at the router. FCPM also adaptively adjusts its marking rate based on the load of a router. Based on the marking, it identifies the source address. The motivation of Flow Control Packet Marking Scheme is to identify the source address of the DDOS attack traffic.
