On the Internet, a distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attack is one in which amultitude of compromised systems attack a single target, thereby causing denialof service for users of the targeted system. The flood of incoming messages tothe target system essentially forces it to shut down, thereby denying service tothe system to legitimate users.The FBI's latest survey of cyber crime lists denial of service as the second mostcostly form of cyber attack, only slightly trailing theft of proprietaryinformation. This book offers an in-depth examination of this increasinglypopular form of network-based attacks by providing a thorough description ofthe scope of the problem, both actual and potential, enabling readers tounderstand the severity of the problem and why it occurs. It also containsdetailed guidelines to practical methods of protecting one's network fromDDoS attacks and responding to them when they occur.
