Distributed Denial-of-Service attacks (DDoS) impose a great threat to the availability of resources. Not only is the attack difficult to carryout but also the methods and techniques used to prevent these attacks are so complex that it makes the job to protect the resources even harder. An analysis is carried out for various approaches of detection and prevention systems that can be deployed to reduce the effect of the attacks on the victim. In this paper a comparative analysis has been carried out amongst different techniques for prevention against DDoS attacks and at the end a novel solution is proposed.
