What are DDoS/DoS attacks
DoS attacks are cyberattacks that interrupt the operation of a host in order to make a site or network resource inaccessible to users.
A disruption can be either temporary or permanent. In addition to increasing the load on the server, hackers often conduct reconnaissance during attacks to find weaknesses in the system.
DDoS attacks are a type of DoS attacks that involve multiple compromised systems that are infected with viruses. Their actions are aimed at increasing the load on the host in order to cause a “denial of service”.
What attacks affect
Search engine ranking
Funds to pay for useless traffic
Productivity of the IT structure
Why do hackers carry out DDoS/DoS attacks
- Harm to business competitors.
- Distracting activities to prepare for hacking.
- Revenge, political motives.
- Interest, curiosity.
Attacks can be carried out both on the order and on the personal initiative of attackers for the purpose of education or enjoyment.
What is DDoS testing
DDoS/DoS attacks are one of the most common types of hacker attacks on company web resources. They lead to a loss of customer confidence and, as a result, losses for the business. Fortunately, the system can be made resistant to these attacks. And the only way to test your protection is to perform secure and controlled DDoS/DoS testing within certain agreed-upon scenarios.
Tests will let you know how secure your resources are so that you can create additional security measures if necessary.
How is a DDoS/DoS attacks test performed?
Signing a non-disclosure agreement
Agreeing the conditions and restrictions on the test
Traffic generation based on real browsers and devices
Using different geolocations
Traffic Throttling: Duration and Server Load
