Thanks again, Gary, Kelsey and all at lightreading. Thanks for the archives and the chance of fixing details  Tackilng DDoS),..............., Hoppe all of you have a very nice time

Light Sabre

There are some great providers enabling that BTW. 

Light Sabre

No one likes DDoS. Given the issues it has caused the internet in October, here's hoping we can do great things like decentralziing DNS. 

Light Sabre

and my thanks as well Gary

Light Beer

well equipped but always room for improvement especially considering how DDOS attacks are growing

Light Beer

Thanks again Gary!

Light Beer

Thanks Gary, and slide 12 is a great reference for us on the business impact. Thanks for an excellent and timely lecture this afternoon!! @Listeners we'll see you at Upskill U on Friday for Security: The Plusses and Minuses of Open Source Software

Blogger

Yes, DDoS extortion was a big problem from late 2015 and continued throughout this year.

Blogger

DNSSec could help if properly implemented but increased packet size could also increase the amplification rate if not properly configured

Blogger

Thanks @Gary! Another Listener asked: 

Is there a rise in these DDoS extortion cases? Do they target smaller companies?

Blogger

SDN could certainly be used for mitigation once a threat is detected and properly identified. 

Blogger

@amikat application layer DDoS attacks (e.g. HTTP GET/POST flood) can be stopped before reaching the data center/internal network. Visibility is the key, but they are easily scrubbed upstream once detected.

Blogger

Thanks Gary, Kelsey, good presentation. Have a nice day all

Light Sabre

@Gary Listener Q: Can SDNs prevent or reduce DDoS?

Blogger

Thank you Gary and Kelsey

Light Beer

(I believe misconfigurations of servers, etc., are functions of resources devoted to IT. Mr. Sockrider is right when he says it's a money problem [though he was talking about security of IoT devices].)

Light Beer

Thank you Gary, very good information

 

Light Beer

Thank you!  Very informative!

Light Beer

thanks for a nice lecture

Light Beer

Thanks for the informative presentation!

Lightning

Gary and Kelsey, Thanks for this informative presentation.

I turned the wifi on my Samsung washer and dryer off

Light Beer

Good job! Thank you!

Light Beer

Thanks @Michelle See you next time.

Lightning

Thank You for knowledge !!

Light Beer

Room for improvement

 

Light Beer

Thanks so much for this presentation, Gary & Kelsey! Timely content well presented.

(I have to head out early)

Light Sabre

With the evolution of smart appliances, what would they call the next generation of dumbwaiters? 

Light Beer

Good and timely presentation. Thanks Garry Sockrider and Kelsey Ziser.

Light Beer

Room for improvement.

 

Light Beer

needs improvement

Light Beer

still room for improvements

 

Light Beer

plenty of room for improvement!

Light Sabre

There is a lot of room for improvement 

Light Sabre

Well prepared throgh Tier 1 Service Provider.

Light Beer

A lot of room for improvements

Probably a lot of room for improvement!

Light Beer

Always room for improvement.

Reply to 2nd listener poll: a lot of room for improvement to mitigate DDoS attacks

Light Beer

Equipped but not well

Light Beer

A lot of room for improvement

Light Beer

room for improvement !!

Light Beer

needs improvements

Light Beer

A lot of room to improve on DDoS mitigation

Light Beer

there is a lot of room for improvement 

Lightning

There is certainly room for improvement

@GARY:

Slide 17: Is there any chance to tackle the application layer DDoS attacks (e.g. HTTP GET/POST flood) before reaching the data center/internal network ?

Light Beer

October is National Cyber-Security Awareness Month, everyone.

Light Beer

When possible disconnect from the network.

Light Beer

good suggestion

Light Beer

Very concerned, especially about IOT insecure devices

Light Beer

Good advice re: remote access

Blogger

How can we segragate networks? What kind of router do we need to manage this?

Light Sabre

Slide 14 definitely has some helpful resources to check out after this program

Blogger

http://www.openresolverproject.org/

Light Sabre

How can DNSSEC help in these attacks?

Light Beer

Agreed! DDoS preparations much like flood prep -- should be critical

Light Sabre

If "for hire" why can't law enforcement find them?

Light Beer

Let's put the burden on Underwriters Laboratory (UL) to certify the software inside these IoT devices.

Light Beer

If we can secure all the things, will these attacks stop? I assume some other type of attack would surface (innovation!!!)

Light Sabre

How can producers of simple smart devices keep cost down without compromise security? e.g. a smart light switch

Light Beer

Krebs' was massive before Friday's attack

Light Sabre

Perhaps these people should clean their refrigerators.

Light Beer

@John and @dbay Definitely a funny mental image!

Blogger

poll answer: I'm very concerned about IoT DDoS attacks. security is lax on so many of these products

Light Sabre

I'd say Very Concerned

Light Beer

("We already have refrigerators attacking people." LOL, but unfortunately it's true.)

Light Beer

Interesting choice of words...

"Refrigerators attacking people"!

Light Beer

a bit concerned

 

Light Beer

not concerned yet

 

Light Beer

very concerned

Light Beer

Reply to 1st listener poll: somewhat concerned about DDos attacks from IoT devices.

 

Light Beer

very! esp after Friday

Lightning

Very concerned

 

 

Light Beer

Sleeper cells, but this time it is not humans, instead it is IoT devices. Robo attack!!

Light Beer

Q: "Agility in modifying attack vectors when mitigated" - how?

Light Beer

@Michelle some experts suspect that last Friday's DDoS was due to unpatched devices like TV and such.

Light Beer

well played, bad guys

Light Sabre

Have unpatched smart TVs been involved in any of these botnet attacks? My tv hasn't updated in years (so it remains unconnected to my network).

Light Sabre

@Kelsey, I agree and remeber Ms. Marty mentioning that, but security is not high on the list of subjects covered, except as a separate degree/diploma.

Light Beer

AAre there any early warning systems?

Light Beer

telegraphing the attacks and still the targets couldn't defend against?

Light Sabre

Innovative approach to go with multi-vector attacks

Light Sabre

ransomware is different than DDoS. right?

Light Beer

@gnean great idea, last week Rita Marty talked about how important it is for students to take security courses

Blogger

I think attack-as a service providers are definitely on the rise from what I've been hearing @Michelle

 

Lightning

point and click distribution is a scary development

Light Sabre

very true! malware/ransomware attacks bring security to the forefront..

Light Beer

Do you know if attack-as-a-service providers (attackers) are on the rise? What can smaller companies do to thwart an attack? Anything?

Light Sabre

I think Security should be a Computer Science 101 and a 400 level course, sort of start and end-off with security in mind.

Light Beer

Is there any kind of early warning system that can detect a potential attack? I assume security analytics could help quite a bit. What else is available?

Light Sabre

Good, fast, cheap. Choose two.

Light Beer

Great questions everyone! We'll have our listener poll and ask Gary a question in just a few minutes. Keep your questions coming!

Blogger

@GARY:

What portion of DDoS attacks is actually enabled by the misconfiguration (servers, network infrastructure, home devices)?

Light Beer

As with all technology... a lowering of costs equals more attacks

Light Sabre

Is there a rise in these DDoS extortion cases? Do they target smaller companies?

Light Sabre

Question for Gary Sockrider: Can SDNs prevent or reduce DDoS?

Light Beer

@Michelle thanks for the URL.

Light Beer

What are the tools available for enterprise customers who want to mitigate DDoS attacks with out relying on Service providers ?

 

Light Beer

The Dyn Report: http://www.zdnet.com/article/the-dyn-report-what-we-know-so-far-about-the-worlds-biggest-ddos-attack/

Light Sabre

Good afternoon all! 

Light Sabre

How about the spearfishing incident Mr. John Podesta fell victim to? He was sent a link to a fake G-mail login page and the thieves got his User ID and password. Whoaaaa!!!!!

Light Beer

Lord of the Rings

Light Sabre

Light Beer

Hi, from Spain!!

 

Light Beer

Thanks for your response @TeleWRTRLiz

Light Beer

Thomas Wolfe's trilogy

Light Beer

The news networks (ABC/CBS/NBC) said that it was launched off IoT devices. Yikes!!

Light Beer

Reply to listener test poll: Favorite series of books is the "All Creatures..." series by James Herriot.

Light Beer

@Rinkobc9 I'll look into it for you. Just remember you need to meet the terms and conditions of the promotions to qualify. Terms and conditions are linked at the bottom of the email. 

Lightning

Test Question: Bourne series of movies (I have not read all the books, though)

Light Beer

Lord of the Rings Series

Light Beer

A webinar on DDoS is just a week late, given last Friday's DDoS attack, but it is better late than never.

Light Beer

same here ... bait and switch on the t-shirts

Light Beer

hello from Munich

Light Beer

hello from washington dc

 

Light Beer

We have audio, Yay!!

Light Beer

Hello @TeleWRTRLiz--I never receive any of the promotional items associated with these presentations.  Just saying.  I am owed a headlamp, t-shirts, adn numerous amazon and starbucks cards.

Lightning

Good morning/afternoon everyone!  Remember to turn up your volume on the computers.  At the top of the hour an audio player will pop up on your screen.  If you don't see it, try to press F5 to refresh your screen. Go ahead and download the slides from the link in the "Special Educational Materials" section located above the live chat. Be sure to post your questions, comments and thoughts on the message boards!

Blogger

Hi @Deeh! The shirts are one size fits all so sadly, you can't specify sizes. I'll check on the other promotions for you -- be sure to check the terms and conditions on the promotions, too. Looking forward to the class today!

Lightning

Good topic for today

Light Beer

Hi @TeleWRTRLiz I never received any of the free items advertised items. Do you know who we give t-shirt size info?

Light Beer

Good afternoon all, pretty windy here in Ohio

Light Beer

@Kelsey Ziser ("@John last Friday's attack was pretty bad! I was trying to get on Twitter all day with no success of course."): Even our Roku had problems connecting to its servers.

Light Beer

Good noon, ready to learn, greetings to all

Light Sabre

Of course Krebs is going to claim he was hit worst of all!

Light Beer

Question: On slide 13, it asks if businesses are prepared for a DDoS attack. Is there a way to make a business site invulnerable to these attacks? (For instance, how well does identifying and blocking rogue IP addresses work if the addresses are being spoofed?)

Light Beer

@John last Friday's attack was pretty bad! I was trying to get on Twitter all day with no success of course.

Blogger

(From slide 10) Brian Krebs's blog was hit with one of the biggest DoS attacks in history? I wonder if that distracted DoS attacks from other websites.

Light Beer

@ppgg78 Go Cubs! Last night's game, though. ugh! 

Lightning

@dbay672 t-shirts haven't gone out yet ; )

Lightning

Hi All! Looking forward to today's class that's for sure. Very timely, I'll say.

Lightning

Greetings & salutations everyone!

Light Beer

Which IDC report(s) is Mr. Sockrider referencing above?

Light Sabre

This is a timely topic! Just today, Dyn suffered a major outage after a DDoS attack.
