DNS DDoS: Challenges and Mitigations

Sep 8, 2021, 4:40 PM
Standard Presentation Online Workshop OARConline 35a


Dr Damian Menscher (Google)


Denial-of-Service (DoS) attacks target thousands of victims every day, often resulting in small outages. Those same attacks can also target unprotected endpoints of larger businesses, often causing out-sized impact. We review the DoS risks for DNS servers, and explore the challenges and mitigation options.

About the speaker:
Damian Menscher is responsible for DDoS defense at Google, where he has studied hundreds of attacks over more than a decade. He uses his experience to design automated defenses for common attacks. Damian has a Ph.D. in physics from UIUC.
