ALL levels of experience, skill, and interest are welcome and encouraged to join us. You do not have to be a “hacker” to attend.


Most of us are familiar with DDoS attacks and the use of compromised devices to launch them. We’ve heard of booters and stressors, and attacks by Anonymous and other groups against companies. What most don’t really know beyond the basics are the attack types and methods used, how they’ve changed over time, and how DDoS attacks are combated at the detailed level.
Participants will learn:
  • What DDoS most commonly affects and why it works
  • Attack evolution over time and the types of tools used
  • Attack types and methods from network to application layers
  • How enterprise and service provider solutions for dealing with DDoS and how they work in detail.

Take home resources will be provided including a “cheat sheet” for testing the resilience of your simulated network in the lab, and a Python script that can actually spoof a three way handshake and send an attack payload. Participants may want to bring a laptop to examine the cheat sheet and review the code as we walk through it.
