We propose to use the SYN/ACK-CliACK pair's behavior to detect the various SYN flood attacks more accurately. The SYN/ACK packets carry the full information of the TCP connections and it is impossible for the attacker to evade the detection by spoofing the control packets. Moreover, we use a space efficient data structure, counting Bloom filter, to recognize the CliACK packet and the memory cost is 2 MB even for 10 Gbps link speeds. We need to fully compare our scheme with the existing detection mechanisms in future.
