Abstract: Low-rate denial of service attacks sends the sequence of periodic pulse which are low rate, when it is aggregated there will be a huge loss at the victim end. LDoS attack flows low rate of scaling function and hiding information for long duration. LDoS attacks severely degrade the availability of a victim, which can be a host, a router, or an entire network. The occurrence discovering is takes place based on the network traffic features. It will detect both the known and unknown LDOS attack in the considered network traffic features. The traffic records can be analyzed by different algorithm. This paper is concentrated on the survey of LDoS attacks and it is detected by the mechanism using holder exponent of difference value (D-value) between normal and LDoS attack under network traffic.

Keywords: LDoS, Holder exponent, D-value.
