It is normal that the attackers over the network may use the fake source IP address to conceal their actual locations. This paper proposes a framework that bypasses the deployment challenges of IP Traceback techniques [1]. This system researches Internet Control Message Protocol error messages (named path backscatter) activated by spoofing traffic, and tracks the Spoofers based on the information available by the public(e.g., topology). Along these, the proposed framework can discover the Spoofers with no deployment prerequisite. Despite the fact that the proposed framework can't work in all the spoofing attacks, it might be the most helpful mechanism to trace Spoofers before an Internet-level traceback framework has been deployed in real. The results are got by implementing in the form of simulation using Java platform for understanding the system over the networks.
