ACK flood DDoS attack

This article will guide you on methods to prevent ACK flood #DDoS #attack. An ACK flood DDoS attack occurs when an attacker attempts to overload a server with TCP ACK packets. 

Client requests connection by sending #SYN (synchronize) message to the server. Server acknowledges by sending SYN-ACK (synchronize-acknowledge) message back to the client. Client responds with an #ACK (acknowledge) message, and the connection is established.

When computers communicate via TCP, received packets are acknowledged by sending back a packet with an ACK bit set. 

The TCP protocol allows these acknowledgements to be included with data that is sent in the opposite direction. 

Some protocols send a single acknowledgement per packet of information.

To stop a SYN #DDoS attack:

1. Filtering.

2. Increasing Backlog.

3. TCP half-open: The term half-open alludes to TCP associations whose state is out of synchronization between the two potentially because of an accident on one side.

4. Firewalls and Proxies.

5. Reducing SYN-RECEIVED Timer.

6. SYN Cache.

7. Recycling the Oldest Half-Open TCP.
