Denial-of-Service Attacks - DDoS
Denial-of-service attacks (DoS) attack is an effort to make an application or a website inaccessible.
The DoS causes an excessive flood of data that overloads an application or a website network.
DoS attack comes from a single source.
Distributed Denial-of-Service Attacks
Distributed denial-of-service attacks (DDoS) attack comes from different sources.
Like DoS, DDoS attempts to make an application or a website inaccessible.
The attack can come from more than one attacker or a single attacker that uses bots.
Bots are infected computers that automatically flood your application or a website with excessive traffic.
AWS provides you with an AWS Shield to reduce DoS and DDoS attack effects on your application or a website.
