Two decades after the first distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attack, the Internet continues to face DDoS attacks. To understand why DDoS defense is a difficult problem, we must study how the attacks are carried out and whether the existing defense solutions are sufficient. In this work, we review the latest DDoS attacks and DDoS defense solutions. In particular, we focus on the key advancements and missing pieces in DDoS research.
