With the development of large open networks, security threats for the network have increased significantly in the past few years. Different types of attacks possess different types of threats to network and network resources. Many different detection mechanisms have been proposed by various researchers. This paper reviews different type of possible network attacks and detection mechanisms proposed by various researchers that are capable of detecting such attacks.
