Distributed denial of service is flooding of network with unrelated information by malicious node. Thus causing the authorized service deny from user. This distributed denial of service poses a major security threat. The mitigation of distributed denial of service becomes hard when they it comes to distributed environment. In general denial of service intended to shut down for a period of time. The discovery of these attacks become challenging when the authors intend to use expensive network devices. In this paper, they propose a technique called iHoneyCol which effectively mitigate distributed denial of service rather than present filtering approach. iHoney Col is integration of Firecol and Honey pot.
