DDoS Mitigation – Best Practices for a Rapidly Changing Threat Landscape White Paper

Although distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks have become a mainstay of hackers' arsenals, their profile has changed considerably in the past year or so, making them an even greater threat to companies that conduct business online or have significant investments in their online brand and reputation. DDoS attacks are larger, stealthier, more targeted and more sophisticated than ever. Given the extraordinary and rapid changes in the DDoS terrain, traditional DDoS mitigation tactics such as bandwidth over-provisioning, firewalls, and intrusion prevention system (IPS) devices are no longer sufficient to protect an organisation's networks, applications and services.

Verisign has identified a set of best practices that enables organisations to keep pace with DDoS attacks while minimising the impact on business operations. This paper describes these practices.
