The application layer is another prime target for Denial of Service attacks. In this course, you'll explore common application layer DoS attacks like SlowLoris, the Reddit Hug of Death, and UDP app-layer attacks. With botnet traffic making up about 25% of all Internet traffic, they are a real cause for concern. You'll also learn about bots and botnets, including their purpose and common ways they are proliferated. Since Denial of Service attacks can cause so much havoc, you need to do all you can to defend against them. Finally, you'll explore commonly deployed DoS and DDoS defensive countermeasures, tools, and strategies. This course is one in a series that helps to prepare you for the Certified Ethical Hacker v11 (312-50) exam.
