Security is one of the critical attributes of any communication network. Various attacks have been reported over the last years but mainly denial of service effects entire network in a drastic way. So many mechanisms are developed but they are lagging in aspects like identifying IP spoofing (by session hijacking) and attack source. Existed Mechanisms identifies the attack after it’s effect is being experienced by the victim. So we propose a new mechanism that is implemented on a router to identify the attack by monitoring the traffic flow, for that router uses a routing table with newly proposing attributes, i.e., timer, MAC address, and packet count. By using MAC address, there is possibility of finding actual attacker.
