Beating botnets with more botnets

Very interesting research on using a swarm of servers to shield an application server against DDoS attacks.

"It is a very interesting approach that integrates a number of existing ideas," says Yin Zhang of the University of Texas in Austin, US.

"I particularly like the idea of leveraging swarming to defend against botnets," Zhang added. "Converting BitTorrent users into a community-based botnet defense sounds interesting and promising."
