There are two statistical decision making questions regarding statistically detecting sings of denial-of-service flooding attacks. One is how to represent the distributions of detection probability, false alarm probability and miss probability. The other is how to quantitatively express a decision region within which one may make a decision that has high detection probability, low false alarm probability and low miss probability. This paper gives the answers to the above questions. In addition, a case study is demonstrated.
