We propose a new mitigation mechanism against DDoS called Pseudonymous Credit Driven Mechanism (PsCredit). The primary driving force of this mechanism is a new cyberspace economic modeling - pseudonymous credit modeling, which provides a suitable ROI scheme and support for roaming and privacy. This mechanism can process packets at wire-speed, and it can defend effectively against all known DDoS attacks.
