A Denial of Service (DoS) attack is a deliberate attempt to make your website or application unavailable to users, such as by flooding it with network traffic. To achieve this, attackers use a variety of techniques that consume large amounts of network bandwidth or tie up other system resources, disrupting access for legitimate users. In its simplest form, a lone attacker uses a single source to execute a DoS attack against a target.
This whitepaper provides you with prescriptive DDoS guidance:
