    Abstract :

    In recent time, the business companies are leveraging the cloud service that significantly improve their business oppotunities by enabling the usage of technological benefits of cloud network. Companies can host their business over the cloud network connected with internet that offer access to theem in a scalable, reliable computing resources. However instead of technological growth and benefits of the cloud resources, a less significant research efforts has been put in place to protect the cloud networks and resources hosted over it. Whenever a end user is connected with the internet try to access the cloud resources, the attacker may intercept into it and may perfome complete damage to the company resources.In this research, the DBOT-CCC is presented that is a Detection of Botnet Command and Control in Cloud network by applying the novel approach of honeypot and DNS traffic analysis. Most of the botnet detection techniques are either Honeypot based or Rule based techniques which are not well suitable in cloud infrastructure scenario because of their resource intensive nature but by integrating the light-weight application of honeypot application for data logging and then by applying the monitoring of outbound DNS traffic inspection is lead to the detection of botnets in cloud network. The DBOT-CCC takes the advantages of Honeypots that is a proactive security approach for detection of attacks.
