Cloud computing is a paradigm which involves delivering hosted services over the internet and is predicted as the next generation of information technology architecture whose high potentiality enhances efficiency and reduces the costs. Although cloud computing is still considered as a young field, it has to deal with challenges such as security, performance, accessibility and so forth. Cloud services can be vulnerable to Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS), which is one of the most common and damaging forms of attack on the cloud. Therefore, detecting and encountering security attacks on the cloud are of considerable importance.
