Avoid amplified DDoS attacks using FPGAs


There are couple of techniques proposed for preventing your servers from being flooded by huge amounts of (non)requested data such as pipes, data scrubbing (usually via third-party centres), etc. What’s very important here is the detection and recovery time so that the damage/outage affecting your business is minimised.
In this regard, FPGAs can be very useful as they’re capable of handling high-throughput computations which, in this case, is extracting features (including src/dist IP etc) and detecting the malicious behaviour in the network.

We are currently looking into this sorts of applications and would like to hear more about your use cases.
