The purpose of this message is to solicit participation in birds of a
feather (BOF) session to discuss the Distributed Denial of Service
WHO: Everyone interested in aggressively addressing a category of attack
threatening Internet-connected systems.
WHAT: We (ICSA.net ) are offering to put together at least two BOF's to
discuss DDOS attacks in the trin00, TFN, TNF2K, TFNTK,
WHEN & WHERE: The first BOF session will be Tuesday January 18, 2000
from 7 to 9 pm at Hyatt Saint Claire Hotel, Ballroom Lobby Level.
Refreshments will be served. This BOF session coincides with the RSA
conference but the BOF is located across the street from the Convention
Center and is open to all interested parties.
The second BOF will coincide with the North American Network Operator's
Group conference (Feb 6-8, 2000 at the Doubletree Hotel, San Jose CA).
The date and precise location of the BOF are being determined.
WHY: The goals are two-fold initially, awareness of the problem and see
if the collection of smarts at a BOF can suggest effective ways of
dealing with these attacks other than "hoping" the clue-challenged
secure their systems before the trojans are installed.
Technical Review of Attack tools
