"Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks pose a serious threat to the online applications like banking, trade, and e-commerce which are dependent on availability of internet. Defending Internet from these attacks has become the need of the hour for sustainable development of any economy. Most of the paper in this area focuses on developing defense against these attacks without considering its practical deployment on the Internet. They evaluate the defense through simulation or experimenting in controlled environments. However, a sincere thought is required to deploy these defense mechanisms in an incrementally acceptable way on the Internet."
