2 What is a DDoS Attack? Flooding attack from compromised PCs run by a Botmaster The Botmaster s motivations may be political, financial, retaliatory The goal is to disrupt networks, applications or services Steal or destroy proprietary or confidential information Steal or destroy personal information They might try to charge a ransom to stop the attack Servers ZOMBIE Switch ZOMBIE BOTMASTER ZOMBIE ZOMBIE 2

3 DDoS Challenges DDoS attacks still #1 threat to data centers Size of volume-based attacks increasing 80% of attacks less than 50 Mbps Most successful attacks under 1 Gbps Attacks getting more sophisticated Layer 7 attacks, DNS and SSDP reflection attacks fastest growing types Hackers using DDoS to mask data breaches 3

4 Types of DDoS Attacks Bulk Volumetric L7 Application Layer Multi-Vector Designed to overwhelm and consume available internet bandwidth or overload servers (e.g. SYN, UDP, ICMP floods). Problems: Services unavailable to users Can mask data breaches Attack sizes getting larger Easy to implement attack Smaller, more sophisticated attacks that target layer 7 application services on servers like HTTP, SMTP and HTTPS. Problems: Slip past traditional defenses Fastest growing attack type Detection difficult Easier for botmasters to implement A combination of bulk volumetric and application layer attacks Problems: More difficult to defend against. Detection is more difficult Can mask data breaches Takes more resources to launch 4

5 DDoS Defense Options DDoS Service Provider Firewall/IPS Dedicated Appliance Managed service subscription model usually with separate detection and mitigation. Pros: Easy sign up Easy deployment Cons: Expensive overages Unpredictable costs Limited to L3/4 attacks Limited flexibility Integrated device that includes firewall, intrusion protection and DDoS prevention. Pros: Single device Less units to manage Cons: Poor volumetric mitigation May require licensing Performance impacts Inline data center appliance that provides layer 3, 4 and 7 DDoS detection and mitigation. Pros: Predictable costs Advanced Layer 7 protection Cons: Additional device management Layer 3 devices can be vulnerable to large attack May require signature updates Expensive for high-performance 5

6 Bulk Volumetric SYN Flood: Spoofed SYN Packets fill the connection table of servers, and all other devices in your network path Zombie Flood: In zombie or botnet floods, non-spoofed connections overload network and application services. Bulk Volumetric Designed to overwhelm and consume available internet bandwidth or overload servers (e.g. SYN, UDP, ICMP floods). Problems: Services unavailable to users Can mask data breaches Attack sizes getting larger Easy to implement attack Lots of unpatched hosts to use ICMP Flood: In these floods, ICMP packets, such as those used for ping, overload servers and network connections. TCP/UDP Port Flood: TCP/UDP packets overload the servers and network ports not being used for a service, such as TCP port 81. Fragment Flood: Fragmented packets overload the servers. Anomalous Packet Flood: Deliberate or accidental packet errors in scripts by hackers easily overload network equipment and servers as they attempt to deal with anomalies. Amplification Attacks: Abuse the fact that lots of UDP protocols respond to requests without validating the validity of the requestor. Reflection Attacks: First we saw DNS, Simple Service Discovery Protocol (SSDP), and NTP. The latest vector in this attack mode is Portmapper. 6

7 Application Layer Attacks L7 Application Layer These attacks exploit design flaws in the HTTP protocol regarding how and when requests are processed by the server. If an HTTP request is not complete, or if the transfer rate is very low, the server keeps resources busy waiting for the rest of the data. As with any DoS, if this goes on for too long the server can run out of resources and crash. Smaller, more sophisticated attacks that target layer 7 application services on servers like HTTP and HTTPS. Problems: Slip past traditional defenses Fastest growing attack type Detection difficult Easier for small botmasters to implement HTTP POST: POST body messages are sent at a very slow rate and disrupt proper connection completion. Eventually the victim server runs out of resources and crashes. HTTP Slow Read: Attackers force servers to send a large amount of data, however its sent in many very small fragments and read at a very slow rate by the receiver. Slowloris: Using HTTP GET, attackers launch multiple incomplete and time-delayed HTTP GET s to keep the connections open as long as needed to deplete resources. HTTPS: Similar to HTTP attacks, these attack SSL services on servers. 7

8 Why the increase? Its easy. All you have to do is google around for stresser. Columbus School District in WI had an incident two weeks ago, which has since been repeated at other districts. A group of students went to and purchased a DOS attack that shut down the district, and then after it was over has caused them blacklist and DNS issues. 8

20 FortiDDoS Qualifying Questions Are DDoS attacks one of your top data center threats?» DDoS attacks are still the number one threat to IT data centers even with ISP-based DDoS mitigation Are DDoS attacks continuing to plague your data center even with other DDoS mitigation solutions?» ISP-based solutions mostly focus on layer 3 and 4 attacks and let anomaly, state and smaller application-level attacks through to data centers. FortiDDoS behavior-based DDoS detection can identify and mitigate these attacks and can supplement ISP services for large bulk events Do you find that your current service-based DDoS mitigation solution is expensive with unpredictable costs?» FortiDDoS can be up to 1/3 less than service-based DDoS mitigation solutions without overages. With overages, customers can easily run up charges based on the size and volume of DDoS attacks once they exceed their caps Are you worried that a dedicated hardware solution is tough to manage and can t protect against large bulk DDoS attacks?» FortiDDoS easily integrates in with other data center equipment and it s automatic learning tools allow customers to setup their device in less than an hour. Line rating on FortiDDoS protects the device from being overwhelmed during a DDoS attack and still lets good traffic to pass through with minimal interruptions 20
