Abstract: In recent years, communication and data stored over the World Wide Web (www) increased enormously. At the same time attacks over internet have increased. As a result, lots of researches have been done on securing the internet infrastructure. Due to trusting nature of IP, the source address of a packet is never authenticated. This leads to the need of some technique to find the source of transmitted packet. IP traceback has become widely used technique for these researches.In previous IP traceback methods, finding exact source of attack and reconstructing the attack path was two major issues. Deterministic Flow Marking (DFM) provides an innovative approach to overcome these issues. It traces the origin of spoofed source IP Address of attacker node and provides an optional authentication approach for the victim. In this paper, a wide survey has been carried out to identify and classify the existing IP traceback schemes.
