Distributed Denial of Service Attacks and Other Digital Control Measures in Asia
This chapter focuses on the use of distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks by states to control online content. An example of the use of DDoS by Vietnamese government to make a website, bauxitevietnam.info, created to protest the bauxite mining in the Central Highlands of Vietnam, inaccessible to people, is presented. The chapter presents surveys according to which DDoS attacks exist within larger attacks of a different nature and vary in nature and magnitude. Correlation between DDoS, filtering, defacement, and intrusion attacks is explored through the example of a dual attack on a Burmese independent Web site. The chapter presents surveys on the responses to DDoS attacks including blackholing the Internet protocol address, downgrading content, and filtering out attack traffic.
