Greater portions of the world are moving to cloud computing because of its advantages However, due to its distributed nature, it can be easily exploited by Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks. In distributed DDoS attacks, legitimate users are prevented from using cloud resources. In this paper, the various DDoS detection and defenses mechanisms cloud computing are reviewed. We propose a new technique based on Remote Triggered Black Hole (RTBH) to prevent DDoS attacks before it target to cloud resources. © 2018 IEEE.
