From the last few years, routing infrastructure attacks like Distributed Denial of Service Attack (DDoS) and Denial of Service (DoS) Attack have been the most trending topic in the domain of Network security. And these days most of the people prefer online payment, online shopping, online class etc. So the attackers tries to flood the router during this time. And We are focusing on Distributed Denial of Service Attack. In this paper, it implement a method to detect (DDoS) Distributed Denial of Service Attack in router by using Ns3 simulator. For this simulation we used unbalanced dumbbell topology. And the process of imposing attack scenario in dumbbell topology is defined in section VI. This simulated DDoS attacks are presented in graph by using the proposed algorithm to detect the routing infrastructure attack in the network.
