A Focus on Distributed Denial of Service

This newsletter is intended to educate and inform enterprise network and data center operators about the problem of distributed denial of service (DDoS) – how it works, the underground economy that fuels it, the risks and costs of being attacked and finally, how best to combat the problem. The information is based on Arbor Networks over twelve years experience monitoring global Internet traffic, conducting detailed research, tracking the evolution of the problem and above all, successfully mitigating attacks for the world’s largest network operators.

A Gartner presentation titled A Deep Dive into Internet Infrastructure Attacks is also included within, and provides critical insight into the DDoS problem, featuring research from Arbor Networks' annual Worldwide Infrastructure Report. The Gartner research also includes important information on other infrastructure attacks on Certificate Authority, DNS and 4GLTE networks.
