The Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks are launched synchronously from multiple locations and they are extremely harder to detect and stop. Identifying the true origin of the attacker along with the necessary preventive measures helps in blocking further occurrences these types of attacks. The issue of tracing the source of the attack deals with the problem of IP traceback. Several techniques have been proposed for IP traceback. One of the major challenges in design of efficient traceback scheme is to minimize the number of packets required for successful traceback.
