DDOS/DOS Attack Classification per Attack Target and Attack Vector

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Recent DDOS attacks got all of us to struggle to develop new defense mechanisms. It is very hard to develop protection for every single new and unseen DDOS attack. These attacks made us all feel like we are chasing our tail. The idea of this research is to develop DDOS attacks classification based on a large sample of attacks (together with example attacks for each attack class). This research will show how DDOS attacks are conducted using few defined attack vectors and attack targets.Developed DDOS attack classification would enable development of protection mechanisms for each type (class) of DDOS attack. Therefore, organizations would be able to develop preventive mechanisms for any new DDOS attack. Accordingly, accompanying incident management process can be implemented and be successful. 

DDOS attacks cause system exhaustion by using different attack vectors. This research work and talk will define categories of system exhaustion attack vectors with defined protection mechanisms to enable development of preventive DDOS attack measures.
