DDoS attacks are tricky to detect and hard to defend against. But the chances are good that you’ll be a victim of a DDoS attack either directly or indirectly at some point in your IT career.
FastNetMon is DDoS detection software available both as open source and in commercial versions. On today’s Priority Queue we’ll explore the open-source version, look at how it works, examine its capabilities, and discuss hardware requirements.
We’ll also look at how it can use BGP black holes and BGP Flowspec to help mitigate DDoS attacks.
Our guest is Pavel Odintsov, FastNetMon’s project leader.
FastNetMon recently added IPv6 support in the Advanced (commercial) version.
