Khalid A. Fakeeh . An Overview of DDOS Attacks Detection and Prevention in the Cloud. International Journal of Applied Information Systems. 11, 7 ( Dec 2016), 25-34. DOI=10.5120/ijais2016451628
Security is an illusion unless you are hacked. Attacks in the Cloud have more catastrophic and destructive impact on the organizations than the user might expect. As attacks are constantly evolving and making it difficult to defend. Most of the organization will try to check their devices in the cloud to protect against viruses with traditional security measures like antiviruses, or firewall thinking it secures across different attacks, but with a wide range of change in attack pattern organizations have exposed to significant operational and business consequences, not to mention public embarrassment. In this paper, we conducted the survey on DDOS (Distributed Denial of Service) attacks research work and analyzed prevention and detection methods used for DDOS attacks in the cloud. We found that there is a good amount of research scope in detecting and preventing slow client application layer attacks in the cloud.
