Sometimes attackers try to undermine network security by denying legitimate users access to the network. Learn about two techniques that you can implement to defend your network against these denial of service attacks: flood guard and loop prevention.
- [Teacher] Sometimes, attackers try to undermine…network security by denying legitimate users…access to the network.…Let's take a look at two techniques you can implement…to defend your network against availability based attacks.…Many denial of service attacks rely upon…flooding devices with traffic until they are overwhelmed.…One example of this type of attack is the SYN flood.…You may recall that in a SYN flood attack,…the attacker creates thousands of partially open…TCP connections to a device by sending SYN packets,…but never answering the SYN ACK packet…to complete the three-way handshake.…
This is one example of flooding,…and there are many similar attacks…in the attacker's toolkit.…Another example, MAC flooding,…occurs when attackers send large numbers…of different MAC addresses to a switch,…hoping to overflow the switch's MAC address table,…and cause it to forget where devices are,…and then flood traffic out to every switch port,…allowing the attacker to eavesdrop…on sensitive communications.…Network devices often offer flood guard protection…
Learn about communication and networking best practices, including TCP/IP networking, network security devices, and secure network design and management. Instructor and cybersecurity expert Mike Chapple also includes coverage of converged protocols, network encryption, and wireless networking.
