Distributed Denial of service Attacks on Cloud Environment

Ruchi Mehta


Security in this world of digital computing plays a typical role, since all the operations are automated and large volumes of data are being maintained in the servers. Cloud computing is one of the evolving technologies where a huge volume of storage is made on-line, data and services are also distributed. Because of its distributed nature, they have become easy targets for the intruders to exploit the information. The well known Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attack is the most prominent attacks in this area of computing. DDoS is the single largest threat to internet and internet of things. This paper provides a wide survey on various DDoS attacks, their vulnerabilities and countermeasures proposed against them. Also this paper provides an in-depth analysis on effects of DDoS attacks in the Cloud environment. Through the analysis done it will be useful for designing a secured cloud infrastructure which will abide the DDoS attacks.
