Distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attack has turned into one of the major security threats in recent years. Usually the only solution is to stop the services or shut down the victim and then discard the attack traffic only after the DDoS attack characteristics (such as the destination ports of the attack packets) are known. In this paper, we introduce a generic DDoS attack detection mechanism as well as the design and setup of a testbed for performing experiments and analysis. Our results showed that the mechanism can detect DDoS attack. This enables us to proceed to the next steps of packet classification and traffic control.
