    [EN] AWS: Free DDoS protection by default

    Free tier will block '96 percent' of attacks.

    Dec 2 2016



    Amazon cloud customers will get free DDoS protection by default under a new scheme called AWS Shield, unveiled by chief technical officer Werner Vogels today.

    Vogels said feedback showed that DDoS attacks were one of customers' biggest concerns.

    AWS customers will not need to do anything to get the base level of protection - AWS Shield Standard - applied to their account.

    Shield Standard will defend against volumetric attacks - which Vogels said make up 65 percent of DDoS attacks - and “most” state attacks, which account for 20 percent of all DDoS attacks.

    AWS said the free tier is designed to block 96 percent of all DDoS attacks at infrastructure layers three and four, including SYN/ACK floods, reflection attacks, and HTTP slow reads.

    It has promised the “always-on” detection and mitigation techniques will not affect latency.

    The top tier AWS Shield Advanced will be available for bigger customers fearing “very large, or very sophisticated attacks”.

    The premium package will cost users US$3000 (A$4045) a month, plus data transfer costs, but comes with access to a round-the-clock DDoS response and support team, plus protection to level seven, targeted application attacks.

    It also offers premium customers cost protection, putting a cap on the amount of paid compute they can become liable for in the event of a resource-intensive hit.

    Paid users will also get near-real time attack monitoring and alerts from the AWS team, custom mitigations, and post-attack analysis reports.

    “We will let you know if we see this sort of activity on our network and you will work with our DDoS team to create protection at level seven,” Vogels said.

    The full comparative breakdown of the services is here.

    AWS launches Shield to protect web applications from DDoS attacks



    Frederic Lardinois

    At its re:Invent developer conference, Amazon today announced AWS Shield, a DDoS protection service for web apps that run on Amazon’s cloud computing service.

    AWS Shield is generally available today and is already turned on (for free) for all web applications that currently run on AWS — no action by the developer required. The service is based on the work Amazon has done with its Elastic Load Balancer, Cloud Front CDN and Route 53 DNS service. It offers developers automatic protection against the kind of DDoS attacks that are sadly becoming more frequent these days.

    The free service, AWS says, will protect applications against 96 percent of the most common attacks.

    Amazon will also offer a paid advanced version of AWS Shield. This version will protect applications against more sophisticated attacks. Amazon will also provide Advanced users with cost protection so they won’t have to incur massive costs when they come under attacks. Customers of the advanced service will also get 24×7 access to a response team for custom mitigations. A one-year subscription to AWS Shield Advanced will have a base fee of $3,000/year plus data transfer fees for the use of the Elastic Load Balancer, CloudFront and Route 53.

    Amazon CTO Werner Vogels noted that the company’s customers have been especially worried about DDoS attacks over the last year.

    Vogels noted that the attacks Amazon is seeing include volumetric attacks that try to bring your network down and those that try to exhaust the resources of a server. The majority of the attacks are volumetric attacks (64 percent), followed by state exhaustion and application layer attacks.

    AWS Shield will be on by default to protect developers from these attacks.

    With this, Amazon is now in competition with the likes of Cloudflare and the DDoS protection services from major networking vendors.

    AWS introduces free and premium Shield DDoS mitigation services

    December 1, 2016



    At its re:Invent user conference in Las Vegas today, public cloud infrastructure provider Amazon Web Services (AWS) said that it has turned on distributed denial of service (DDoS) attack mitigation technology, called AWS Shield Standard, for all of its customers, free of charge.

    It “protects you from 96 percent of the most common attacks today, including SYN/ACK floods, Reflection attacks, and HTTP slow reads,” AWS chief evangelist Jeff Barr wrote in a blog post.

    To help customers prevent more sophisticated attacks, AWS is also introducing a premium tier called AWS Shield Advanced. It lets customers call in a special support team that’s available 24 hours a day and seven days a week. Customers can get notifications when certain infrastructure is used to stop attacks.

    When AWS detects attacks, “we will work together with DDoS protection teams to create the right level of protection using WAF [web application firewall]. We will also keep an eye on cost, making sure you don’t incur any additional cost by using our service,” Amazon vice president and chief technology officer Werner Vogels said.

    The launch of this service comes three years after Google introduced the Project Shield DDoS mitigation tool, but only some organizations have been able to use it, and Google hasn’t made it available for anyone to use in its Google Cloud Platform.

    The launch of AWS Shield Standard and AWS Shield Advanced is an example of AWS, the biggest public cloud today, is able to come out regularly with new services while its competitors strive to catch up. Meanwhile, AWS and the others also compete on price, variety of infrastructure, and geographic availability. Microsoft Azure has not revealed a DDoS mitigation tool.

    As expected, Amazon just got into the managed DDoS protection business.


    Se a intenção era assustar concorrentes de todos os tamanhos, gratuitos ou pagos, atingiu o objetivo

    O anúncio de um serviço dessa importância e prestado gratuitamente pelo maior vendedor de VMs da galáxia parece não ter tido repercussão além de reprodução ad nauseam de variações do mesmo conteúdo. Será que é um problema de sites de busca?, jornalismo papagaio?, fim de blogs? A única referência que encontrei com alguma credibilidade foi um blog da XERO, que afirma que o sistema de mitigação foi desenvolvido por equipe da Amazon para uso interno, não explicando se o comércio eletrônico da Amazon é protegido por esse sistema. De resto, nada em lugar algum sobre equipamentos, capacidade, pontos de presença, limites. É a proteção Casas Bahia da Amazon. Avaliações e comentários de concorrentes e "especialistas"? Zero. E como não podia deixar de ser, alguns sites alugados proclamaram que o Google faz também, o Google faz melhor, só não tem nada para mostrar e não oferece o serviço ao público. A Internet fica menos útil a cada dia.
