Black Hat Europe 2011 will report on Anonymous DDoS attack mitigation

The Radware experts will be analysing the Anonymous attacks, many of which were driven by the LOIC application, and will be revealed how to detect, analyse and mitigate the effects of DDoS - distributed denial of service - attack.

As part of their presentation entitled, "Building Floodgates: Cutting-Edge Denial of Service Mitigation", Yuri Gushin and Alex Behar will brief attendees on the topic.

They will, say Black Hat organisers, provide an in-depth look at some of the recent attacks that have affected businesses and organisations worldwide and reveal how advanced Anti-DoS technologies can effectively mitigate such threats.

In addition, they will release an open-source HTTP robot defence system and demonstrate ways of defending against LOIC - Low Orbit Ion Cannon, an open-source DoS application used in the recent WikiLeaks attacks.

"As more businesses depend on virtual servers to store information and run websites, there is no time to waste when it comes to developing new tactics that help to counter cyber criminals," said Yuri Gushin.

"We remain vigilant in the face of new security threats and will continually develop cutting edge defence solutions that ensure network reliability and provide reliable uptime for critical Internet applications," said Alex Behar.

Infosecurity notes that Gushin and Behar's presentation takes place on Friday, March 18, 2011, at 1:45 pm local time at Black Hat Europe 2011.
