DDoS attacks detection using machine learning and deep learning techniques: analysis and comparison

Mahmood A. Al-Shareeda, Selvakumar Manickam, Murtaja Ali Saare


The security of the internet is seriously threatened by a distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks. The purpose of a DDoS assault is to disrupt service and prevent legitimate users from using it by flooding the central server with a large number of messages or requests that will cause it to reach its capacity and shut down. Because it is carried out by numerous bots that are managed (infected) by a single botmaster using a fake IP address, this assault is dangerous because it does not involve a lot of work or special tools. For the purpose of identifying and analyzing DDoS attacks, this paper will discuss various machine learning (ML) and deep learning (DL) techniques. Additionally, this study analyses and comparatives the significant distinctions between ML and DL techniques to aid in determining when one of these techniques should be used.
