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.
See my talk (and the associated draft papers) from the D.C. NANOG;
there were also several DDoS talks in Scottsdale.
