Abstract

The relevance of flooding attacks is increasing day by day. The incongruity between network capabilities and market requirements lead to the development of novel network architecture named software-defined networking (SDN). SDN architecture drastically shifted the pace of networking environment from hardware to software, which provides a manageable, cost-effective, dynamic, and adaptable nature for today’s applications. The role of SDN in security application by collecting network information and designing framework for detecting attacks is incredible. A case study is conducted in the SDN environment for the real-time scenario to analyze the network statistics of both normal and attack scenarios. The network traffics are analyzed and its graphical interpretation is explained for parameters like round trip time, window size, throughput, and window scaling. This helps to understand the significance of network parameters and its responsiveness corresponding to both scenarios to detect DDoS attacks. This preliminary study concluded with the design of a high-level conceptual model for DDoS detection in the SDN environment.
