Transmission Control Protocol Synchronized (SYN) flooding contributes to a major part of the Denial of service attacks (Dos) because of the easy to exploit nature of the TCP three way handshake mechanism. Attackers use this weakness to overflow the TCP queue of the server and make its re-sources consumed resulting it to be unavailable for the requests of legitimate users. So we are in need of a quick and precise defence mechanism to detect the TCP-SYN Flood attack. The main objective of the paper is to propose a detection and prevention mechanism of the TCP-SYN flood attack using adaptive thresholding. Adaptive threshold algorithm (ATA) is used to calculate dynamic threshold .Thus this algorithm helps to overcome the limitations of static thresholding like high false positive ratio and also alert users after violation of the threshold calculated by adaptive thresholding algorithm. The result of the suggested mechanism is very effective in the detection and prevention of the TCP SYN flood attack using adaptive thresholding algorithm.
