Distributed Denial-of-service (DDoS) attack is one of the most perilous threats that could cause overwhelming effects on the web. The name entails, it’s an attack with the purpose of denying service to legitimate users, Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) is defined as an attack in which several conciliation systems are made to attack and make the targeted systems services unavailable, this attack deliberately designed to render a system or network incapable of providing normal services. DDoS attack affects the computing environment, communication and server resources such as connectivity sockets, processing elements, memory, data bandwidth, network routing process etc for mutually connected system environment would surely vulnerable to the entire computing environment. It becomes essential for researchers and program developers to understand the behavior of DDoS attack because it has an effect on the target network without warning. Therefore must to develop an advanced intrusion detection and prevention systems for detecting and preventing to DDoS attack in the cyber space. This survey and taxonomy paper deals with the introduction of DDoS attacks, DDoS attack history and recent occurrence, DDoS attack tactics, different DDoS attack tools, and taxonomy of various attack and preventive mechanisms.
