The Distributed Denial of Services (DDoS) attack is a serious threat to the legitimate use of the Internet. Prevention mechanisms are thwarted by the ability of attackers to forge, or spoof, the source addresses in IP packets. By employing IP spoofing, attackers can evade detection and put a substantial burden on the destination network for policing attack packets. In this paper we propose an inter-domain packet filter (IDPF) architecture that can mitigate the level of IP spoofing on the

A key feature of the scheme is that it does not require global routing information. Based on extensive simulation studies, we show that even with partial deployment on the Internet, IDPFs can proactively limit the spoofing capability of attackers. In addition, they can help localize the origin of an attack packet to a small number of candidate networks.
