Abstract

The paper puts forward a variance-time plots method based on slide-window mechanism to calculate the Hurst parameter to detect Distribute Denial of Service (DDoS) attack in real time. Based on fuzzy logic technology that can adjust itself dynamically under the fuzzy rules, an intelligent DDoS judgment mechanism is designed. This new method calculates the Hurst parameter quickly and detects DDoS attack in real time. Through comparing the detecting technologies based on statistics and feature-packet respectively under different experiments, it is found that the new method can identify the change of the Hurst parameter resulting from DDoS attack traffic with different intensities, and intelligently judge DDoS attack self-adaptively in real time.
