Denial of Service protection - Software tools/methodologies
For my 3rd year project at uni I am carrying out a project looking into "denial of service attacks". I will be using cisco switches and routers, specifically running cisco IOS 12.2, and linux. I have already looked into ways of preventing attacks such as limiting pings, implementing ACL's etc. However my supervisor has now told me to look for software tools/methodologies that prevent DOS attacks. I was therefore wondering if anyone could recommend such software and how they stop attacks?
