From: david.kennedy () ACM ORG (David Kennedy CISSP)

The purpose of this message is to solicit participation in birds of a
feather (BOF) session to discuss the Distributed Denial of Service (DDOS)
WHO: Everyone interested in aggressively addressing a category of attack
threatening Internet-connected systems.
WHAT: We (ICSA.net ) are have put together at least two BOF's to discuss
DDOS attacks in the trin00, TFN, TNF2K, stacheldraht...family.
WHEN & WHERE: The next BOF session will be Monday, February 7, 2000 from 7
to 9 pm at Doubletree Hotel San Jose, 2050 Gateway Place, San Jose, CA -
phone 408-453-4000 (conference hotel). Refreshments will be served. This
BOF session coincides with the North American Network Operators Group
(NANOG) conference and a meeting of ICSA's ISPSec Consortium, but the BOF
is open to all interested parties.
WHY: The goals are two-fold initially, awareness of the problem and see if
the collection of smarts at a BOF can suggest effective ways of dealing
with these attacks other than "hoping" the clue-challenged secure their
systems before the trojans are installed.
Technical Review of Attack tools

Scanning for Master / Slaves
