The volume of DDoS attacks and their variety grows every year. Since 2016 the largest attacks reached 1 Tbps, effectively disconnecting even well provisioned services from the Internet. CESNET dediced to exploit its expertise in building hardware-accelerated network probes to build its own active device with mitigation capabilities. The device consists of 100 Gbps FPGA network card and a commodity server. The presentation will introduce the FPGA technology in network processing domain as well as outline the concept of the mitigation device. The presentation will also summarize lessons learned during the deployment phase. The rest of the presentation will elaborate on selected mitigation heuristics designed to mitigate volumetric DDoS attacks.
