DDOS Attack Taxanomy :-
Flood Attack :-
In a flood attack, attackers send a very high volume of traffic to a system so it cannot examine and allow permitted network traffic. For example, an ICMP flood attack occurs when a system receives sufficient ICMP ping commands that it uses all of its resources to send reply commands.
- IPSec flood attacks
- IKE flood attacks
- ICMP flood attacks
- SYN flood attacks
- UDP flood attacks
Flood attacks are also known as Denial of Service (DoS) attacks.
Amplification Attack :- A Domain Name Server (DNS) Amplification attack is a popular form of Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) that relies on the use of publically accessible open recursive DNS servers to overwhelm a victim system with DNS response traffic.
Protocol Exploit Attack :- Exploit a specific feature or implementation bug of some protocol installed at the victim in order to consume excess amounts of its resources
