The Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attack is one of the most alarming threats on the internet. A DDoS attack attempts to exhaust the critical resources of the intended target servers in order to deny their services to legitimate clients. In this paper, a bottom up detection and prevention techniques for TCP Sync flooding attack has been proposed thereby achieving an efficient quality of services provisioning. The authors' method relies on the use of monitoring and measurement techniques to evaluate the impact of SYN flooding attacks, find out the victim node and blacklisting it. They also tried to improve the network throughput and congestion window and minimize average end-to-end delay.
