    DDoS protection with attribution services?

    Hi all,

    Does anyone know of any DDoS protection providers also offering 'attribution' services (i.e. going beyond the originating IP addresses to identify the botnet, or botnet controller who caused the attack)?

    Am I the only one who thinks this would be a useful add-on to some of the high-end solutions? It would certainly help identify whether the attacks were likely to continue in the future.

    Many thanks,


    Alex

    Hi,

    If I understand correctly, you're looking for a service which would tell you the I.P. address of the botnet controller?

    I'm afraid there isn't any such service as it just isn't possible to do. It'd be the same as trying to tell who uploaded a website just by looking at the main page. Not the best analogy, I know.

    Hope that helps.

    Actually, someone claimed to offer this once but I believe they're out of business now. Maybe it was a scam?
