Re: engineering --> ddos and flooding

I'm going to reply to my own post here. I am thoroughly impressed. I sent the message out and in 10 minutes I had two replies. Keep the ideas coming, I will form up a general suggestion message and post it later. One thing to think about, I want a way to do it without having to call a NOC like Genuity and asking them to put in a filter, I want a way to do something about it at a lower level. Like multiple connections....Remember NOC calls take time because of hold times... Someone just told me (on here) that the IETF is working on something, anyone know how many more years it will take for that protocol?

Thanks again,
Andrew

Hey, this is a technical question for all of the Network Engineers/Architects on the list. Has a method been found to stop an incoming attack? Granted you can filter the packets to null on the router, but that doesn't stop them from coming across the wire and into the router. Has a way been devised to stop them from coming into the router; via something like a BGP update to null the packets or what? I'm concerned about a flood that is so massive coming from the core and flooding a small T1 or less.

Thanks,
Andrew
