A Denial-of-Service (DoS) attack is a malicious attempt to make a server or a network resource unavailable to users, usually by temporarily interrupting or suspending the services of a host connected to the Internet Interconnected systems, such as Web servers, database servers, cloud computing servers etc., are now under threads from network attackers. As one of most common and aggressive means, Denial-of-Service (DoS) attacks cause serious impact on these computing systems. In this paper, the authors present a DoS attack detection system that uses Multivariate Correlation Analysis (MCA) for accurate network traffic characterization by extracting the geometrical correlations between network traffic features.
