Protecting the Network From Denial of Service Floods
Source: Juniper Networks
Denial of Service (DoS) and Distributed DoS (DDoS) floods are commonplace across today's Internet. This paper describes several types of DoS floods that are plaguing today's enterprise networks and describes in detail how to detect and counter them. Enhanced tools are now available to analyze and respond to these attacks, reducing complexity and streamlining operational responses. This paper describes the steps necessary to optimize the network to survive the heaviest of floods and how to effectively respond when they occur.
