The TCP/IP suite, the basis of today's Internet, lacks even the most basic mechanisms of authentication. As usage of the Internet increases, its scarcity of built in security becomes more and more problematic. This research project describes the serious DoS (denial of service) attacks against Internet Protocol control on a host computer and management protocol with an accent on the Internet control message protocol (ICMP), as well as some of the well known vulnerabilities of the inter domain routing protocols. All the present attacks have at least one common feature: they exploit intrinsic Internet Protocol security flaws. As tools that make this procedure of attacks extremely simple are starting to appear, we have chosen to research various detection and prevention techniques. This paper discusses various types of DoS attack, various tools involved and lastly the implementation stages of the research. The last section describes in depth of the current analysis stage.
