Protecting your servers, workstations and networks can only go so far. 
Attacks which consume your available Internet-facing bandwidth, or 
overpower your CPU, can still take you offline. His presentation will 
discuss techniques for mitigating the effects of such attacks on servers 
designed to provide network intensive services such as HTTP or routing.

no redeeming social value.
