Toss Attackers Into a Black Hole with Open-Source Software

Wednesday, April 20 | 9:00AM–10:00AM | Grand Ballroom I, Grand Level, Fourth Floor
Session Type: Professional Development
UC Santa Cruz implemented an automated incoming remotely triggered black hole (RTBH) routing solution using open-source software (except for the border router itself). We used Bro for detection, Justin Azoff's BHR for the queue and API endpoint, Quagga for the trigger router, and a little Python to glue it together. Come see and hear how you can do it too.

OUTCOMES: Learn about UC Santa Cruz's automated incoming RTBH routing solution * Learn about open-source software that may be useful to other institutions wishing to implement RTBH
