Distributed Denial of Service Attack Challenges in Cloud Computing: A Review
Cloud computing as an ever-evolving technology has appeared to be a new discovery, with a history that can be traced to the 1960s, yet the computing paradigm has not been fully adopted till date. This is due to the security and trust management issues associated with the paradigm. Studies so far have shown remarkable efforts in the area of cloud computing security but has paid little attention to the area of application-based denial of service and its distributed variant. To this end, this paper highlights the Extensive Mark-up Language Denial of Service (XDoS) and the Extensive Mark-up Language Distributed Denial of Service (XDDoS) as one of the security challenges that inhibit the adoption of cloud computing. So many researchers in this field have proposed different solutions to this issues, however, it was observed that there is a need for an efficient and more effective counter-measures solution against XDoS and its distributed variant XDDoS which are application based denial of service that can be found in software as a service (SaaS) cloud computing service model.
