Distributed denial of service attacks pose an immense threat to the internet. In this work TCP SYN flood attacks are detected using matching pursuit algorithm. Dictionaries are generated using K-SVD algorithm from normal and attack traffic of training data. Using these dictionaries and applying matching pursuit algorithm detection of attacks are performed pursing resulting residuals of matching pursuit operation.
