This book provides a comprehensive textbook on Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks. It will present both their history and the necessary technical background, including the social impact, economic impact, and other implications of DDoS. The text covers DDoS attack detection, mitigation and on-going research in detail. There will be a focus on bandwidth-starvation attacks. The tools used to perform these attacks, attacker motivations and legal considerations will also be discussed. To help with instruction, each chapter will have example homework questions included. It will also provide a set of exercises that include running, measuring, and countering DDoS in a laboratory setting.
