Internet-Scale Security

September 2, 2014

Arbor Networks is a member of an elite group of institutions that might be referred to as "super remediators." This is a reflection of having both visibility and remediation capabilities at nearly every tier one operator and the vast majority of service provider networks globally. The Arbor Security Engineering and Response Team (ASERT) shares operationally viable intelligence with hundreds of international Computer Emergency Response Teams (CERTs) in an out-of-band manner, apart from the Arbor Networks product line. We also provide this same data to thousands of network operators via in-band security content feeds. ASERT also operates the world’s largest distributed honeynet, capturing traffic destined for pullup routes at major providers across the globe. As of Q3 2014, ASERT monitors roughly 90 terabits per second (Tbps) of global Internet traffic, which we estimate to be a third of the average global Internet bandwidth. This mission and the associated resources that Arbor Networks brings to bear to the problem of global Internet security is a massive impetus for innovation and research. This presentation was originally given at AUSCert 2014 and outlines various datasets that ASERT maintains and offers some brief statistics and findings on global DDoS and advanced threat intelligence.
