- NANOG: NANOG50 Presentation Abstracts and Speaker Biographies –
In this talk, we present detailed, quantitative data on 5,000 operator confirmed (via manual classification) network infrastructure attacks over the last year across 37 carriers. We explore the magnitude, frequency and characterize both the attack vectors and victims. Previously, most data on carrier security trends has come from qualitative vendor surveys (e.g. Cisco, Arbor, etc). We believe this talk represents the first large scale study of validated (i.e. "ground-truth") botnet and DDoS attacks. We conclude with estimates of botnet size and efficacy.
Solid, meaty goodness. Stats, data and detail. I think I made a tent in my pants with this much data.
