Tampa War Games: Network Security 3—DDOS and Countermeasures

Become the master of their disaster. This session will provide an understanding to Denial of Service attacks and Distributed Denial of Service Attacks and Mitigations. We will cover the 3 main modalities of DOS: Application, Protocol, and Volumetric and set up your own botnet. Learn how to conduct DOS and DDOS attacks in a safe, non-federal law breaking session, where you can see your targets wither and become unresponsive under your oppressive thumb.
