Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks continue to pose higher threats to the internet. There are so many protocols designed to trace the attacker's address. The authors want to trace back attack source (i.e., "IP addresses"), they need to examine the tradeoff between different existing IP Trace back techniques. They developed a Novel protocol to trace the IP address of DDoS attack. The novel protocol is designed by using response 1, Nonce of secure-neighbor as the parameters. They developed a sample network model. They simulate the network model by applying secure-neighbor protocol in Qualnet.
