FastNetMon Community 

Led by Pavel Odintsov

IXPs are in a very unique position to help their customers dealing with DDoS attacks, as they have required expertise and are well established links with the network community. In this presentation Pavel will talk about the open source DDoS detection product called FastNetMon Community. In addition to DDoS detection FastNetMon can be used as a very flexible network automation or traffic visibility platform. The most common scenario for FastNetMon Community is RTBH (blackhole) automation or BGP traffic diversion.
