DDoS threat has been rapidly evolving recently, up to the point when it started to be a community-wide problem. Numerous IoT-related working groups were spawned throughout the last 2 years mostly due to the infamous 1,1Tbps IoT DDoS attack in autumn 2016. Fast-forward 1,5 years, and we see attacks even more disastrous.

This workshop aims at dissecting the DDoS threat. It goes over the ISO/OSI layers, offering a mutually exclusive and collectively exhaustive classification of denial-of-service attacks, a description of what makes them possible, and a set of possible ways to mitigate attacks of any kind, from an ISP perspective.

The workshop is based on a personal experience. It is vendor-agnostic and doesn't cover or promote any solutions available on the market, an attendee is welcome to use this as a guide to build their own.
