Detect and mitigate DDoS attacks on a public network using sFlow and BGP sessions
DDoS Mitigation Challenges
Limited Talent Available
One of the main challenges that ReliableSite had was finding talent that could actually take on a task like this. We had never worked on this type of project but we are excellent at learning on the fly and achieving desired outcomes.
Detecting attacks efficiently
We had to troubleshoot through trial and error to find a way to efficiently detect attacks when large quantities of data are coming in.
Creation of duplicate rules on BGP session
There were scenarios where there was duplicate rules on sessions and we had to find a way to resolve that from occuring.
