what is this project?
Name: OWASP WS Amplification DoS Project (home page)
Purpose: The project aims to explore the threat of an Amplification DoS attack that utilises webservices.

Currently, DNS servers are widely misused to amplify DoS traffic. This is called a DNS Amplification or Reflective attack. It appears that SOAP webservices that implement WS-Addressing might be vulnerable to similar abuse, as stated in this paper The aim of the project is to develop tools to test this vulnerability and determine the threat magnitude on a global scale. If necessary, a publication involving awareness and countermeasures will follow.
