Course Description

Denial of Service attacks can be very disruptive to an organization both monetarily and reputationally. In this course, you'll explore Denial of Service and Distributed Denial of Service attacks, as well as common DoS techniques and categories and common tools used to perform them. Next, you'll examine volumetric DoS attacks, which are one of the more common types deployed by attackers. These include UDP flood, Ping of Death, Smurf, and Pulse Wave. Finally, you'll learn about protocol-based DoS attacks, including SYN floods, ACK floods, and fragmentation attacks. This course is one in a series that helps to prepare you for the Certified Ethical Hacker v11 (312-50) exam.
