In this paper, a mechanism for reducing the DoS (Denial of Service) attack has been explored. DoS have become the major threat to the internet. It is malicious efforts of attackers to deny the legitimate user to access the website or any web service through internet. This is an attack in which attackers tries to cripple the services of internet. Protecting the legitimate traffic from the denial of service attack not only for availability of services but also for effective utilization of network and local resources such as bandwidth, CPU uses, routers switches etc is necessary.
