Title Protecting web servers from distributed denial of service attack
Author(s) Sivabalan, S
Year 2017
Abstract This thesis developed a novel architecture and adaptive methods to detect and block Distributed Denial of Service attacks with minimal punishment to legitimate users. A real time scoring algorithm differentiated attackers from
legitimate users. This architecture reduces the power consumption of a web server farm thus reducing the carbon footprint.
