Introduction to Denial of Service



This next module in the Penetration Testing and Ethical Hacker series introduces you to Denial of Service (DoS).  These lessons cleanly explore what Denial of Service is, what happens as a result, and why that information is critical to you as an ethical hacker.

The Denial of Service module delivers an in-depth analysis on the availability of info in terms of Penetration Testing and specifically to Denial of Service attacks.  It clearly articulates the relationships of the network and to business, and discusses the two types of attacks you’ll face: regular Denial of Service (DoS) and Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS).  You’ll also learn the differences between the two and unique ways of how to address each event.

And finally, you’ll learn countermeasure techniques for DOS attacks.  You’ll see when to utilize a specific countermeasure, and how to determine what your most effective penetration testing strategies will be.

The topics explored in this Denial of Service module include:

  • Whiteboard, which shows the interrelationship of all the basic components utilized in this module
