(D)DoS: Mitigation Strategies

DDoS AttackDDoS, or Distributed Denial of Service, is a cyber-attack in which an attacker tries to bring the functioning of a computer system that provides a service, such as a website, to the limit of its performance, generally working on one of the input parameters until it is no longer capable of delivering the service.

These attacks are usually carried out by sending many packets of requests against the targeted service, saturating its resources and making the system “unstable,” thereby preventing legitimate requests from reaching their destination.

This document examines those that are the most effective defense techniques from a discursive point of view but also describing an overview about the most common attack techniques. You can have a look at this paper on the InfoSec Institute website by clicking on logo below:
