A Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) aims at shutting down the services of intended servers with over-consumption of bandwidth or CPU processor and memory units, and considers the one of the hardest security problems in today's Internet. In this context, load balancing allows to distribute workloads among the processors, which provides a high protection in local area network (LAN) because it improves the quality of service and the performance. In this paper, we intend to present a load balancing system which is based on various algorithms and has as a main role to mitigate the impact of DDoS attacks.
