In today's society, information and communications technology (ICT) is the force that drives prosperity and provides a higher standard of living. All other e-services and infrastructures tend to play a major role in our daily life and global economy. The growing dependence on such systems, however, has increased their vulnerability to cyber attacks. Any failure to these systems typically would lead to a huge impact, not only on businesses, but also human life, that depends on such interconnected systems. The growing potential for telecommunications network infrastructures problems stems from their nature of openness. A successful attempt for a network attack to a particular organization's network could have devastating effects on the security of the organisation. In this paper we propose an innovative way to counteract distributed protocols attacks such as distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks using intelligent fuzzy agents.
