The Distributed denial-of-service (DDOS) attacks target network resources to disable the websites or services through overloading the resources with a large amount of traffic. The arrival of intelligent systems such as machine learning-based techniques and deep learning techniques have improved the automatic detection of such attacks. The machine-learning-based techniques such as support vector machine (SVM), decision tree, or Na¨?ve Bayes (NB) can efficiently use for classification. CNN or other techniques can also use for constructing deep neural networks to detect attacks. In this paper, we discuss in detail various DDoS attack detection methods.
