Layer 7 DDoS attacks have been on the rise since at least 2010, especially attacks that take down websites via resource exhaustion. Using various tools and techniques - it is possible to defend against these attacks on even a shoestring budget. This talk will analyze and discuss the tools, techniques, and technology behind protecting your website from these types of attacks. We will be covering attacks used against soldierx.com as well as attacks seen in Operation Ababil. Source code will be released for SOLDIERX's own DDoS monitoring system, RoboAmp.
