Title: Cloud DDOS Awareness

Cloud DDOS Awareness
In todays world, IT system's users need quick
access to information from every part of the
network. Distributed Denial of Service attacks
(DDoS) has become a problem as they create
network unavailability by blocking the services
via seizing system resources in a computer in the
network until they stop functioning. Hence having
DDos prevention is a must. In such situations, a
user is working on the system loses the
connection and is stuck in the middle of the
work. The user is not able to log out of the
system which user usually do when there is a loss
of connection or connection is timed out. DDOS
attack creates big trouble for IT systems and
they should be eliminated. (QOS) Quality of
service can be one method which can work on all
routers in the network. Cloud DDoS protection is
launched to make the system and networks
resources unavailable for the users so that
nobody can access it. Web servers, default
gateways, personal computers are mostly targeted
in these attacks. Most of the hackers have their
aim to explore a way through and grab the secret
information which is compromised confidentially.
DDOS attacks are a weapon of choice for hackers
and Cyber criminals as it is inexpensive to
execute, and difficult to stop and impact a very
large network of users.

Many organization are struck by DDOS and Cloud
Computing and are left to scramble in an effort
to stop the attack once the attack is started.
Sometimes coordination with ISP may require that
provides network access. This is especially true
when an ISP is forced to "null route" a victim to
Protect Cloud from DDOS meaning that to protect
other customers, the ISP routes traffic intended
for the victim into the trash. This of course
effectively prevents all access, including from
legitimate users. Over the past few years, DDoS
security setup has become even more challenging
as Cyber-attacks have grown not only in scale but
in sophistication, bypassing traditional
firewalls and taking advantage of vulnerabilities
in web applications. DDOS attack vectors have
shifted from the network and transport layers to
the application layer as Cyber criminals take
advantage of layer 7 protocols for amplification
purposes. As a result, hackers are able to
generate large-scale attacks with fewer machines
and fewer connections Connections that appear to
be used legitimately?aking this method of attack
both efficient and stealthy.
