   Re: [xml-dev] Can A Web Site Be Reliably Defended Against DoSAttacks?

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

dos attacks can be managed - there's plenty of ways to do this - a lot
of work has gone into linux tcp stacks and netfilter to make the more
common attacks manageable. but like all defense systems - you're never
quote sure where and how the next attack will come. just as you get the
stone walls and moats built someone invents the aeroplane....

if the attack comes as web requests or emails there's not a lot you can
do because you need to read part of the message to have any chance of
working it out.

if you run a public website (don't we all?) you rely on the community
