DDoS R&E Service Provider Panel Discussion

Time 10/27/14 03:30PM-05:00PM

Room White River Ballroom D

Session Abstract

The last several years have seen a dramatic surge in the effective use of Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) as a weapon of cyber attack. These attacks have grown from humble beginnings as an occasional nuisance to one of the biggest threats to network stability and security. No longer only the domain of elite attackers, today’s DDoS attacks can be easily launched by those with limited technical skills, and the results can seriously impair the operations of the victim.

The first part of this session will present in-depth discussion from two service providers: SURFNet, the national R&E network in the Netherlands, and MCNC, the regional R&E network in North Carolina. The panelists will examine the taxonomy of DDoS attack vectors, describe the threat landscape from their differing perspectives, discuss lessons learned and present alternatives for effective mitigation that the R&E network community should seriously consider.

The second part of the session will provide ample opportunity for audience discussion and interaction with the panelists. Bring your own experiences dealing with DDoS attacks and join the discussion.

The panel will be moderated by Kim Milford, Executive Director of the REN-ISAC at Indiana University.
