The "Dutch anti DDoS coalition" (working name) is a collaboration of 25 Dutch critical infrastructure operators to better fight DDoS attacks on a national scale. Our objectives are to (1) actively exchange expertise on DDoS attacks across operators and sectors and (2) to develop and operate a "DDoS clearing house" that enables service providers to proactively handle DDoS attacks by automatically sharing information about the characteristics of these attacks. Our consortium includes ISPs, IXPs, banks, government agencies, and a not for profit DDoS scrubbing center.

We present the motivation, status, and challenges of our initiative (10 minutes), followed by a broadly acessible explantation of how the clearing house works at a technical level (15 minutes). We close with a moderated Q&A between the audience and a few coalition members (15 minutes).
