Denial-of-service (DoS)/ Distributed Denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks are on the rise and have evolved into complex and overwhelming security challenges for organizations large and small. A new breed of attacks target Layer 7 of the OSI model, the "application" layer. These attacks focus on specific characteristics of web applications that create bottlenecks.
In this paper I will discuss about Layer 7 Web Attack. Share real life case study about the process and techniques used to mitigate Layer 7 DDoS Attack. Will simulate scenario how to launch Layer 7 DDoS attack and how to mitigate them.
