Ultra fast automated DDoS detection & mitigation

Anurag Bhatia
A few weeks back an Indian ISP contacted me via a contact form on my blog. That ISP has been struggling with a targetted DDoS attack. For the reason of privacy as well as the stability of their network, I will not put their name or AS number. The attack on that ISP was much higher than their bandwidth levels. Their upstream did not really share the volume of attack but I could tell from the screenshots they shared was that it was distributed volumetric attack choking their upstream bandwidth.
