Operational Techniques - AWS Best Practices for DDoS Resiliency

Operational Techniques

The mitigation techniques in this paper help you architect applications that are inherently resilient against DDoS attacks. In many cases, it’s also useful to know when a DDoS attack is targeting your application so you can take mitigation steps. If you experience an attack, you may also benefit from help in assessing the threat and reviewing the architecture of your application, or you might want to request other assistance. This section discusses best practices for gaining visibility into abnormal behavior, alerting and automation, and engaging AWS for additional support.
