Community Tools & Services
Led by James Shank - Chief Architect of Community Services - Team Cymru
2 February 2023 - 14:00 UTC / 15:00 CET
Team Cymru offers a variety of no cost community services for network and security operations teams. We will cover the full stack of services broadly, then go in depth on two of our flag-ship offerings: UTRS and NimbusTM. UTRS is a no cost DDoS mitigation service based on a community cooperation model. NimbusTM is a no cost threat monitoring tool that matches Team Cymru's threat insight against a network's traffic to alert on communications with known malicious hosts. We invite all network operators to become Internet Heroes by joining Team Cymru in our mission to Save and Improve Human Lives.

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.
