Networked and distributed systems have introduced a new significant threat iu the availability of data. and services: network denial of service attacks. A well known example: Is the TCP SYN flooding. In general, any statefull handshake protocol is vulnerable to similar attacks. This paper examines the network denial of service in detail and surveys and compares different approaches towards preventing the :attacks:ks. As a conclusion, a number of protocol design principles are identified essential in designing network denial of service resistant protocols, and examples provided on applying the principles.
