Organizations working on “trusted web” to avert DDoS attacks




Several Dutch companies, including providers and banks, working on a ‘trusted Internet’ in order to protect critical infrastructure against DDoS attacks. Therefore a massive cyber attack would not be able to paralyze the country in one fell swoop. Here is a brief introduction.

The aim of Ddos = make your surroundings unavailable to the rest of the internet.
Reaction? = We do it myself but as a precaution and we just switch over to a private network?

The innovation dripping from and of course goes back 100 million cost …….

It is mainly the backbone infrastructure to be protected. So that a DDoS eg. Not to disrupt communication between banks and merchants.

If a critical service is connected to the Internet then is that with a purpose.
Mutual communication is in fact already available in numerous ways without suffering a DDoS.
What should we expect from such an approach?
Suppose a bank is attacked and then they turn in this trusted system. Result is not a single shop in the Netherlands for a certain period can execute transactions pin while the bank itself or good can safely do his own thing.
For the bank is indeed little on what account the money state as long as they have access to the markets so limited income spoiling, but all retailers then?
Instead of innovating you get more of a tortoise effect which is only available to companies with a lot of money and you only need “BOE” calling as hacker and you have the desired result.

I can understand that an attack on the payment platform IDeal example for the rest of the world can be closed.

After this, however it continues to work in Netherlands (bet 99% of users).

The same could be done with, for example, medical data. In a major attack you can block part of the SPD or a hospital network so you can still hold the service in the air.

And coming back to your example, then so can be in any store in Netherlands pins but still can not be controlled from England, for example if your PIN is correct (and not debit cards). This so you reduce the economic damage.

Likewise, you can of course still think of more things where the progress is only hindering a small precentage visitors to it for a large group of people to work.

you just make it the assumption that you can only expect from abroad a DDoS.

Is there any insight into the financial loss to the BV NL rises by DDoS attacks? And I do not mean ‘consumers’ sites gedossed because this will be the scenario presented above are still down for the end user as they become disconnected from “the Internet.”

A better question is: what scenarios are that a DDoS attack disrupts business to business communications? And is not to bypass much better in other ways?

There is a company which offering free software for enhanced load balancing:

“Less vulnerable to DDoS attacks
The additional benefit of this best in class load balancer is That It Provides a Mitigating effect to Distributed Denial of Service attacks (DDoS attacks). ”

So loadbalacing is a must have to fend off DDoS attacs

Just seems like an access list. If your IP is not known and is on the list there you can during an attack .. also not.

Had to even think of Tom Scott’s The Bubble:

But undoubtedly one has better intentions here.

Sounds like a devious attempt yet again to come back to net neutrality.
Not immediately, of course, it comes in stages. but first base ready to put under the guise of faith.

I think it’s indicative of what parties are all missing from that list … “parent company KPN” despite daughters XS4ALL and NL-ix do it, UPC / Ziggo, Vodafone, T-Mobile, etc. So you want yourself from the global routing Table withdraw to mitigaten attack but even touches in your home country lost the majority of your end-user connectivity?

If this is important to you, you can better go see if your transit provider makes sense to implement selective blackholing:…s_DDoS_Damage_Control.pdf

Maybe I’m too suspicious but this comes at me over like a legitimate excuse occurs to the Internet still will “regulate”.

It sounds pretty good at first but tackles the cause of the problem DDOS not.

If a few times a year and a couple of hours used per time is not a problem but if it is a situation where you get manipulated Netherlands / countries a kind company (ies) between communication difficult. Dependent on … undoubtedly certain parties going to jump in here commercial. Government services are undoubtedly very interesting.

Well what to say here now, little pointless. We go all except our friends suffer in case DDoS and the rest vd world viewing it. A separate private network so kind.

If therefore the economic damage can be limited, fine anyway? Like the movie itself says, better that than just complete inaccessibility.

I think it’s an interesting idea and am wondering if it comes this way from the ground. It would be awkward if there are many competing “trusted networks” occur.

The Dutch secret service is involved (see end movie). I can not mention any secret service which verifiably more positive than negative contributions has made to society.
This “trusted web” smells like something that will be even less privacy than the current Internet.
