Denial of Service (DoS) attack is presently a very serious threat for the Internet security. These attacks attempts to exhaust victim's resources e.g. CPU cycles, memory or network bandwidth. Thus, disturb the consistent access of services to the user. When DoS attacks are formed by multiple distributed computers it is called as Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attack. DDoS attacks can weaken computing and communication power of its victim within a short period of time. Because of seriousness of the problem many defense mechanisms have been proposed to encounter the attack.
