Abstract

Resource of victim impounded by DDoS attack leads the victim to series monetary loss apart from various other ill-effects. Already lot of solutions came up in technological aspects almost neglecting the economical aspects. Hence there is not yet a proper method to make the zombies accountable to the economical loss materialized as the effects of highly zombie oriented DDoS attacks. Therefore the need of the hour is to develop a prudential monetary based DDoS solution that serves as the economical defense as well as strives to bring heighted awareness among the zombies. Consequently in this study we discuss the techno-economical scheme termed as Penalty Scheme. This scheme is an idea of enforcing necessary means to evaluate the accountability of zombies which therefore serves as the economical defense towards the notorious DDoS attacks. This method notifies and makes the zombies aware of the loss incurred through their careless participation in DDoS attacks. The proposed scheme is analyzed using real time datasets, the results show the considerable improvement in the DDoS attack handling through integrating the Penalty Scheme with the cooperative filtering approach.
