Abstract- Software-Defined Networking (SDN) is a promising sample that allows the programming behind the network’s operation with some abstraction level from the underlying networking devices .the insistence to detect and mitigate Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) which introduced by network devices tries to discover network security weaknesses and the negative effects of some types of Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks. An SDN-based generic solution to mitigate DDoS attacks when and where they originate. Briefly, it compares at runtime the expected trend of normal traffic against the trend of abnormal traffic; if big deviation on the traffic trend is detected, then an event is created; as an event associated to a DDoS attack is produced, an SDN (OpenDayLight) controller creates flow rules for blocking the malign traffic, By designing and implementing an application that reactively impairs the attacks at its origin, ensuring the “normal operation” of the network infrastructure. The evaluation results suggest that the proposal timely detect the characteristics of a flooding DDoS attacks, and mitigates their negative impacts on the network performance, and ensures the correct data delivery of normal traffic. The work sheds light on the programming relevance over an abstracted view of the network infrastructure.
