Over the internet, in their day-to-day life the authors are working with interconnect systems such as web servers, database servers and cloud computing servers. These are the systems which are dealing with so many requests and respond them as legitimate requests. But the systems can be targeted by the attackers using Denial-of-Service (DoS) attack for temporary or permanent failure of the system. Denial-of-service attack causes serious impact on the performance of the server with many times the server gets down and stops processing the requests especially the genuine or legitimate requests. It happened so, because the server remains busy with the fake requests sent from the attackers by serving those fake requests.
