Flow aggregation or time synchronization ensures low-rate denial of service (LDoS) attack flows form an ideal rectangular pulse at the victim to maximize attack efficiency. The differences of end-to-end delay between each host are critical for aggregation or synchronization. A new approach based on Euclidean distance is proposed to avoid the complexity of direct measuring internet end-to-end delay. Using NS2 experiments, the performances of such coordinated attack are shown and compared with
