The Internet is used extensively for important services such as banking, business, medicine, education, research, stock trades, weather forecasting etc. Most of these services must be processed in a timely manner. However these services are delayed, degraded and sometimes completely disrupted because of unavailability of internet. The inherent vulnerabilities of the internet architecture provide opportunities for a lot of attacks on its infrastructure and services. Behind these attacks is a large pool of compromised hosts sitting in homes, school, business and governments around the world.
