DDoS Mitigation in Virtualised Infrastructures with Intel SmartNIC

Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks threaten businesses with downtime that can be damaging to their brand and reputation and even lead to financial losses. With the many IoT device-powered botnets and "for-hire" DDoS services, the threat and complexity of an attack is now greater than ever.

Attacks against the network, DNS, and TLS tiers can render your networks, applications, or other supporting infrastructure inaccessible. Especially network layer attacks can consume massive CPU resources on the defence side.

F5 can identify the attack traffic via a multi-layered DDoS mechanism and offload the mitigation into an integrated Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) acceleration card (SmartNIC). By attending this session, you will...

  • Understand why network DoS mitigation needs FPGA support
  • Learn about F5 network DDoS mitigation layers
  • Understand the value of the Intel FPGA Programmable Acceleration Card: What it is, where it's used, what it does
