About this talk

Federated social media networks are quickly becoming a popular alternative to mainstream social media platforms. Collectives like the Fediverse are helping over 4 million users interact with each other without relying on centralized platforms. To protect itself from attacks like distributed denial of services (DDOS), federated sites like Mastodon require protection that works with their architecture. In this webinar, experts from Mastodon and Fastly’s cybersecurity operations center (CSOC) will share lessons learned from mitigating DDOS attacks on Mastodon Social and techniques for protecting federated architectures.
