That's the Sound of DDoS Working from an IP Chain-Gang

Presented by

Guy Rosefelt, Director of PM at NSFOCUS

About this talk

NSFOCUS showed in our “2018 H1 Cybersecurity Insights” report that "Recidivists are responsible for 40% of the attacks we saw on the internet, most of which are botnet activities and DDoS attacks". Since botnet activities and DDoS attacks are usually launched from multiple sources in a collaborative way, it's not surprising to see that many of these recidivists are working together as a group in these attacks. We call these groups "IP Chain-Gangs" as most people had trouble pronouncing "recidivists”. Opening a new area of research, NSFOCUS recently published our “Behavior Analysis of IP Chain-Gangs” report documenting how, by using innovative techniques, we identify "IP Chain-Gangs" and study the behavior of the chain-gangs using DDoS attack data collected by NSFOCUS since 2017. In this webinar, we will provide insights into this intriguing new research, explaining how we identify IP Chain-Gangs, how we characterize IP Chain-Gang behavior, and how future research can be used to improve botnet and DDoS mitigation.
