  • Today’s threat landscape of DDoS attacks is defined by having more complex, Internet-born attacks that are large, long and multi-vector. Multi-vector is a fancy word of meaning that they all come at you at different layers in the internet stack.

    Layers of DDoS Attacks

    The first layer will be focused around the network level DDoS attacks. These are things like UDP and ICMP level attacks, which those are typically volume oriented. Then moving up the network level stack you move into things that focus on the server and server-like resources, so syn-floods, as well as non-volume DDoS attacks, like low and slow and directed DDoS attacks that focus on server-based resources, not just bandwidth but things like stack resolution and volume on processors and the processors capability as well as the ability for your memory to be able to hold up during these DDoS attacks. In addition to that we have application based DDoS attacks. The application based DDoS attacks include things as directed attacks as well as encrypted attacks and application oriented attacks. Some examples of this are get floods, post floods, put floods as well as sequel injections, cross-site request forgery attacks and the very heinous and very hard to deal with encrypted level DDoS attacks, so these are SSL and TLS attacks.
