Day 1

From DDosia with love

Session complexity:
11:45 - 12:10

Discover the intricate workings of the DDosia Project, a prominent example of decentralized cyber-attacks originating from a Russian hacker community. Since the beginning of 2023, DDoS attacks by this hacktivist initiative have been in the news frequently. Dutch commercial and governmental organizations have been targeted several times, including the NCSC itself. Learn about the project’s history, motivations, and operational techniques. Furthermore, we will reveal the workings of a Dutch initiative: DDosiaBot. Gain insights into this small but clever countermeasure tool, used to deliver precise mitigation techniques to our constituents and international partners, which are tailored to the specific attack patterns detected within the DDosia botnet.
