Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) Attacks has been increasingly found to be affecting the normal functioning of organizations causing billions of dollars of losses. Organizations are trying their best to minimize their losses from these systems. However, most of the organizations widely use the Intrusion Prevention System (IPS) to observe and manage their networks. One of the major functional areas of a IPS is DDoS detection and DDoS management. This paper examines how the network management systems could aid in the detection of the DDoS attacks so that the losses from these could be minimized.
