Type:  White Paper

Distributed denial-of-service attacks may be organized by type into a taxonomy that includes network attacks (layers 3 and 4), session attacks (layers 5 and 6), application attacks (layer 7), and business logic attacks.  Each type may be matched with the best F5 technology for mitigating that attack.  This paper explains how taken together, the F5 BIG-IP portfolio of products provides effective anti-attack technology for each layer of the taxonomy and can also defend against specific attack tools, network reconnaissance, and low-bandwidth asymmetric attacks.
