In 2006, 100,000 servers were broken down just within 10 minutes [1]. Those were the victims of some denial-of-service attacks. This news and knowing that some of those victims were so well-known companies like Hotmail and Amazon, indicate the significance of this kind of threats and attacks. ldquoIn a DoS attack, a malicious client (called the attacker) performs operations designed to partially or completely prevent legitimate clients from gaining service form a server (called the victim)rdquo [2]. DoS attacks can be categorized in two main classes: logic attacks and flooding attacks. In flooding attacks, which are discussed in this paper, the resources of the victim server are consumed by sending a big number of requests to it in order to make it unable to provide appropriate services to legitimate clients.
