Botnet constitutes several hosts connected in a network which are utilized to perform malicious activities including DDOS attacks, spamming and phishing etc. by an illegitimate user namely the botmaster using a command and control mechanism(c&c). When the hosts in a botnet communicate in a P2P (Peer-To-Peer) fashion, It forms a P2P botnet. The authors aim at detecting the P2P botnet with minimized value for false postiveness by introducing a method to calculate the threshold automatically so that the attacks with value of certain parameters above that threshold are only declared as an attack.
