After searching few forums I came across these titles,

  • Computer Networks, Andrew S. Tanenbaum , David J. Wetherall
  • Computer Networking: A Top-Down Approach, James F. Kurose, Keith W. Ross
  • TCP/IP Illustrated, Volume 1: The Protocols (2nd Edition),Kevin R. Fall, W. Richard Stevens

  • Which one is more preferred over others? Any other books? I am more interested in practical exercises.

    My goal is to learn, how do these hackers carry out DDoS and still remain anonymous, how do I prevent my website from such attacks, how do they take over a website and post their own messages, how does a network work.
    Right now it looks like a magic to me. and I want to establish a technical details to it.

    Thank you

    Can this be moved to more appropriate forum? I did not get any answer here so far. Thank you.

    I am reading Keith Ross's top down approach book and I can say that it is more focussed on how our underlying networks work but I dont think your need of how exactly DDOS attack are invoked will be answered in this book and neither in Andrew S. Tanenbaum. These Books will just give you a theoretical outlook towards DDOS attacks.

    I hope my suggestion helps you.

    I agree. Here's the link:
