A DOS (Denial of Service) attack, as its name suggests, denies or blocks access to certain services by flooding either the bandwidth of a specified network or by targeting its connectivity. There are much security challenges in mobile cloud computing. Cloud indicates a period of the computing where the services, which are an application, are made available by the internet. Cloud based computing is very adjustable and cheap as to providing a platform for various IT services. The mobile systems can hinge on the cloud based computing with mobile agents and can undertake various processes such as the searching or storing, etc. While it’s very economic, it has many challenges such as the security. Various researches have been carried out to build a secure mobile cloud based computing. In this paper, we have viewed and analyzed the DDOS (Distributed Denial of Service) attacks in depth to prevent it in the mobile cloud computing.
