A good paper on the topic is:

  author =       {David Moore and Colleen Shannon and Douglas J. Brown
                  and Geoffrey M. Voelker and Stefan Savage},
  title =        {Inferring {I}nternet denial-of-service activity},
  journal =      {ACM Trans. Comput. Syst.},
  volume =       {24},
  number =       {2},
  year =         {2006},
  issn =         {0734-2071},
  pages =        {115--139},
  doi =          {http://doi.acm.org/10.1145/1132026.1132027},
  publisher =    {ACM Press},
  address =      {New York, NY, USA},

Although there are others as well.
