Anti-DDoS services

Generally speaking, mitigating and combating DDoS-attacks is a complex matter and there are multiple ways to tackle these. 

Within the AMS-IX ecosystem of connected networks there are members and customers who can provide various anti-DDoS measures and services to other autonomous systems, either on a commercial or non-commercial basis.

For example, one of our members offers a so called ‘Naughty Port’ concept 1, while another, the Dutch cooperative initiative NaWas offers a scrubbing service2 (the ’National Washing street’). But these are just a couple of the many third party offerings available on the AMS-IX platform for members and customers which can help mitigate the impact of DDoS-attacks.

Our advice is to make use of the knowledge and services of our community and make use of the appropriate mailing lists commercial@ams-ix.net to reach out to them.

We would like to note that the AMS-IX Mailing lists are subject to the AMS-IX Mailing Lists Code of Conduct.

1 Simplified: Predict which networks a possible DDoS-attack is coming from and reroute that bad/ naughty traffic to a small separate small port.
2 Simplified: Internet scrubbing center. During a DDoS-attack traffic is rerouted to NaWas and washed.
