The Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) is a typical cyber-attack that takes network resources unavailable by overwhelming it with large traffic from multiple sources. In a typical DDoS attack, there may be millions of fake requests which run out the network resources. Nowadays, the scalability and traffic of networks grow explosively, which make the DDoS attack detection more complicated and challenging. Big data and machine learning can be tools for dealing with DDoS detections by catching the network traffic features. In this speech, we present some novel DDoS detection and countermeasure methods for large-scale and complicated computer networks including Software-Defined Networks and large-scale Internet using big data framework Spark Streaming and machine learning. We show that the big data and machine learning are powerful in dealing with DDoS.
