This talk intends to introduce defenders to the tools that are popular in the Underground to set up denial-of-service attacks. It will go through some of the tool-kits and techniques that are used to launch those attacks and look at some of the economics: how much it costs an attacker to execute the attack and how much it costs the defender to defend. From point of view of defense we are also going to investigate what are the benefits and drawback of mitigating the attack on premise vs using a service provider that specializes in that field.
