Hi is there any solid algorithm or solution where I can refer to for preventing dos (denial of service)attack on my apache server ? I did the dos attack using slowloris in ubuntu and switchblade in windows targeting my local server.

    There are lots of questions on this site which cover this kind of topic. In short: it is not a simple task and there is no "solid algorithm". There are a number of solutions, products and services for various kinds of DoS though (slowloris is not the only kind of DoS). Commented Mar 8, 2021 at 7:53

    Denial of Service attacks can't be stopped algorithmically. That's like asking "Is there an algorithm to prevent headaches?"
