The rapid growth of internet has directed a collinear increase of internet users. The majority of people using internet have limited understanding and knowledge of computer systems. The majority of users rely on the security software’s that are provided by different firewall vendors to ensure the secure communication. These security software’s design and developed by very highly qualified professionals to ensure threat detection against viruses, malware and spywares. The basic purpose of our thesis is to test and analyze the security firewalls against TCP ACK, TCP SYN, TCP FIN, TCP Connect, Echo Ping, UDP and Denial of Service attacks (Ping of Death, Teardrop, and Land Attack) to check security issues. We also have discussed the similarities and differences between them.
