Abstract: On each successive day, the DDoS attacks are increasing, improving and becoming more critical than ever before. In 2018, CISCO predicted that DDoS attack traffics may reach to 3.1 billion during 2021. Bit and Piece DDoS attack is an emerging attacking technique was found and reported by Nexusguard. This attack mainly targets the communication service providers and it injects unwanted junk information in to the legitimate traffic and thus bypasses the detection techniques. This work is aimed to propose a novel approach for detecting bit and piece attack using statistical metrics. Here, the packet flow is monitored at every second and the variations in the data flows easily identified as an attack.
