With increase in densities of semiconductor chips and decrease in cost, it is feasible to store huge amount of data in main memory. Main Memory Database Management System (MMDBMS) uses main memory as primary storage for huge amount of data and provides very high speed access to it. This makes MMDBMS suitable option for implementation of real-time network security systems. This paper presents light-weight mechanism for detection and prevention of SYN flood attack using MMDBMS. Experimental results are provided to support proposed mechanism.
