Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attack is one of the greatest threats to connectivity, continuity, and availability of the Internet. In this paper, two typical types of DDoS attacks, high-rate (flood) and low-rate (shrew) are studied on their generation principles, mechanism utilizations, behaviors, signatures, and attack performances. Experiment results show that: high-rate DDoS sends a large amount of traffic to destroy the victim but it is easy to be detected and low-rate DDoS organizes a small quantity of traffic to degrade the service quality at the victim end and it is easy to escape from detection.
