Recommendations for Improving the Distributed Denial of Service Attacks Scenario (DDoS)

The document is in Portuguese, but wanted to share anyway, as probably most of the Spanish speakers will be able to understand the concepts and tips.

The document covers both handling a DDoS attack and preventing your network from being abused to perpetrate a DDoS attack against other organizations.

The topics are broken down into these areas:

– Main targets and motivations for DDoS attacks;
– How DDoS attacks are perpetrated;
– Types of DDoS attacks;
– How to stop your network from being abused to attack others (includes amplification, vulnerable Web applications and botnets);
– How to handle DDoS attacks, including preparation, detection, analysis, mitigation and post mortem.

Hope this information can be useful to the community.
