The flow of information is a valuable asset for every company and its consumers, and Distributed Denial-of-Service (DDoS) assaults pose a substantial danger to this flow. If we do not secure security, hackers may steal information flowing across a network, posing a danger to a business and society. As a result, the most effective ways are necessary to deal with the dangers. A DDoS attack is a well-known network infrastructure assault that prevents servers from servicing genuine customers. It is necessary to identify and block a DDoS assault before it reaches the server in order to avoid being refused services. This prompted us to develop a unique way for detecting and preventing DDoS attacks at the router level in a Software-Defined Network (SDN) environment. This study demonstrates how the method efficiently integrates the first and second signatures in SDN infrastructure domains to identify and prevent DDoS attacks. It also proposes an Early DDoS Detection and Prevention (EDDDeP)-based approach for detecting and blocking malicious traffic in an SDN context. This article covers the EDDDeP, which assists in identifying and preventing DDoS in SDN to prevent malicious traffic from reaching its intended target. As a consequence, the DDoS assault is ultimately contained inside the environment, eliminating superfluous traffic in the DDoS network architecture. This method offers a unique technique to detect a DDoS assault and notify nearby neighbours in order to avert server damage.
