What is this session about?

The theme of this training session is Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks. First, the topic is introduced by outlining the typical motivations for and consequences of launching a DDoS attack, the structure of a DDoS service, the relevant legislation, the current academic research, commercial defense offerings, and the feature set of smaller (D)DoS attack tools. Then, a more in-depth presentation of the main types of DDoS attack are presented, as well as a more in-depth overview on how to choose the most suitable defensive techniques. Finally, the real-life defensive system deployed by Telenor is demonstrated, and the effect of an actual attack (and defense) on a game of Counterstrike is shown.
