NANOG Meeting Presentation Abstract

DDoS Tutorial
Meeting: NANOG69
Date / Time: 2017-02-08 1:30pm - 3:00pm
Room: Independence Ballroom I-F (5B Level)
Presenters: Speakers:

Krassimir Tzvetanov, Fastly

Over the past 7 years I worked on abuse/DDoS mitigation Yahoo! and Cisco. At Cisco I also provided consulting for a number of customers on security issues (including DDoS and threat intelligence related to it). Currently at A10 I focus on threat intelligence and product development for security products, as well as serve as high tier escalation point for high profile customers. I have presented at a number of conference on security and DDoS topics. I have ran or co-ran 3 Security Tracks at NANOG so far and I would like to see it have more security content, which I can both arrange for and deliver. I have desire to build a full day security focused track and I can recruit the presenters and deliver the content. More details about my work history can be found on my LinkedIn profile.
Abstract: This Tutorial is targeted to attendees with a strong technical background but no exposure to DDOS. It explains what are the parts that break during high performance/high demand events.

The tutorial covers most of the prevalent attacks and goes in details for the ones that need detailed explanation. It covers different type of flood attacks, reflection and amplification, as well as application level attacks.

It covers concepts like sockets, software architecture, particular details around the TCP protocol as well as some implementation details around the Linux kernel.

This tutorial is an update version of the one I did a year ago in Montreal.
