In this talk we will examine different DoS attack techniques used against cloud services. Many attacks discussed in the presentation target the application layer of the service, are highly efficient and asymmetric. In some cases, a single HTTP request of less than 50 bytes is sufficient to knock out a server until reboot. In addition to describing the attacks, we will also investigate the application design issues that lead to vulnerability, and demonstrate coding fixes as well as cloud based defenses that can be used to mitigate the problem.
