Recently cyber-attacks in Internet using botnets have been increased. Also, crimes involved in monetary profits through cyber-attacks have been continuously increased. Attackers can use P2P botnets to launch various attacks such as Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS), malware propagation, and so on. For this reason, P2P botnet detection techniques have been studied. This paper is a survey of P2P botnet detection, and describes about the general type of P2P botnets and detection methods.
