Distributed Denial of Service (DDOS) is one of the most prevalent attacks and can be executed in diverse ways using various tools and codes. This makes it very difficult for the security researchers and engineers to come up with a rigorous and efficient security methodology. Even with thorough research, analysis, real time implementation, and application of the best mechanisms in test environments, there are various ways to exploit the smallest vulnerability within the system that gets overlooked while designing the defense mechanism. This paper presents a comprehensive survey of various methodologies implemented by researchers and engineers to detect DDOS attacks at network, transport, and application layers using comparative analysis. DDOS attacks are most prevalent on network, transport, and application layers justifying the need to focus on these three layers in the OSI model.
