Security School: Defending Against DDoS Attacks


One of the biggest issues in defending against denial-of-service (DoS) attacks is that attackers' rapidly evolving techniques make it difficult to identify the best defense against them.

This Security School lesson reviews recent cases of DOS attacks, what happened and why, and the lessons you can learn in devising the best DoS defense.
