Two weeks ago, I mentioned how the topic of denial-of-service DDoS issues, and the potential of BGP Flowspec (BGP-FS) as a way to mitigate them, was a very hot topic at NANOG 68 in Dallas. In general, this topic is top of mind for everyone, especially with the very recent widespread cyberattack. Let’s take a look at the continued evolution of methods to handle these attacks.
Traffic filtering policies have traditionally been very static in service provider networks. But in this age of traffic-based, and more widespread, DDoS attacks, operators need to create dynamic filters

Why are public and private organizations still readily being hacked or breach? Simple. Security isn’t. Many organizations focus on securing data being stored, but not data in-flight within or across campuses or data centers. For hackers, data in-flight is great. They don’t have to go looking for the data, the data comes to them.
