IOT BOTNETS AND DDOS ATTACKS: ARCHITECTING AGAINST DISASTER
Cybercriminals have many different ways of exploiting network vulnerabilities and weak spots in our cyber defenses. Considering that the number of devices we use on a daily basis is growing, more avenues of exploitation will be open to cybercriminals — unless we close those pathways. Distributed Denial of Service, or “DDoS,” attacks on IoT networks via botnets have been especially alarming and difficult to counter. Let’s have a closer look at DDoS attacks, botnets and ways of protecting against them. A simple principle governs a “denial-of-service” attack: attackers attempt to deny service to legitimate users. Some typical examples might include attackers overwhelming a server or cluster with requests, disrupting everyone’s access to the site or focusing the attack on a particular target who will be denied access.
