Steven Kreuzer on Denial of Service Mitigation Techniques

6:30pm, Soho Apple Store at 103 Prince Street


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.

about the speaker:

Steven Kreuzer is currently employed by Right Media as a Systems  
Administrator focusing on building and managing high transaction  
infrastructures around the globe. He has been working with Open  
Source technologies since as long as he can remember, starting out  
with a 486 salvaged from a dumpster behind his neighborhood computer  
store. In his spare time he enjoys doing things with technology that  
have absolutely no redeeming social value.
