Abstract


Cloud computing is a rising technology that utilizes a combination of hardware and software to deliver services to the end users over the internet. As the internet is always prone to security threats, reliability and safety in cloud computing environment become a crucial concern. DDoS (Distributed Denial of Service) attack is the biggest threat to all the cloud computing users which is being used at present. The main motive behind the DDoS attack is to prevent the target users from utilizing the network resources efficiently. With the changes in the cloud computing environment, significant changes have been seen in techniques to prevent the DDoS attack. In this paper, we will focus on the cloud computing architecture and how DDoS attacks affect cloud computing environment. Along with this, different kind of DDoS attacks are explored, and various defense mechanism against these attacks are presented.
