Abstract: In wireless local area network (WLAN), accurately detecting the distributed denial of service (DDoS) attack is challenging. Hence in this paper, a fuzzy-based DDoS attacks mitigation technique is proposed to reduce the false positives. Initially the traffic level of the nodes are estimated based on the attack thresholds levels determined using the game theory model. The traffic level, confidence on attack (COA) and network performance degradation (NPD) are considered as input parameters for the fuzzy logic model and the response action is determined as output. The response action includes filtering and removing the attackers from the routing table. By simulation results, it will be shown that the proposed technique enhances the detection accuracy.
