Title: Architectural Defenses Against Denial of Service Attacks (Cody  

Most types of denial of service (DoS) attacks are made possible by a  
fundamentally architectural property of the Internet: there is no easy way  
for a receiver to stop unwanted traffic from a sender. On the one hand,  
this is a desirable feature, as it enables the free and open use of  
applications which has helped drive the success of the Internet. On the  
other hand, increasingly sophisticated and harmful attacks through cheap,  
widely-distributed botnets can make this feature start to look more like a  

Over the past 15 years, researchers have studied how to build DoS defense  
into the Internet at an architectural level. In this talk, I will describe  
the development of -- and tussle between -- various architectural  
approaches to protecting against DoS attacks.

Notably, none of these academic solutions have seen widespread adoption.  
Therefore, I will also explain the current state of affairs in commercially  
available DoS protection services, and describe Gatekeeper, a new DoS  
defense system that emphasizes instant deployability to permit even a  
single deploying AS to defend itself.
