Today, denial of service (DOS) and distributed denial of service (DDOS) attacks are rapidly increasing on the internet. DDOS attacks are used to overload the network infrastructure and services. Such kinds of attacks disable services across networks. Honey pots can be used to ensure the continuous availability of services across networks. Honey pot is defined as a trap that mimics, notices, and records overall activities of the attacker and efficiently prevents the attack. In this way, malicious data will not route toward the production servers. The main purpose of this paper is to prevent DOS/DDOS attacks through expert a honey-mesh security infrastructure. In this paper, software simulation tool DDOSSim is used to identify and simulate DDOS attacks via the defense mechanism.
