Cloud data is facing enormous security issues now a days. Security issues are like
data attack or hijack of data in cloud environment. Major attack scenario is about DDoS
attack, it suppresses the data service permanently or some more time to deny the service. The
real time practical approach could not be carried out because cost of network and its hardware
infrastructure erection is very high. Hence, to overcome DDoS attack problem, a simulation
approach is carried out in this paper. This work is simulated using virtual box with Kali Linux
and Windows OS, to generate SYN packets from Kali Linux OS (attacking machine) and
receive the packets to Windows OS (victim machine).
