Abstract:Distributed Denial-of-Service (DDoS) attacks are an ever growing problem with large societal impact. To defend against DDoS attacks we need to set up defences in every possible layer. There is still very little defence in some of the layers. For this research we designed a system for application layer defence against HTTP flood DDoS attacks. We used fingerprints based on known attacks to create rules that can be used in a Web Application Firewall (WAF).
