Any defenses against slow HTTP Post DOS?

http://www.darkreading.com/vulnerability_management/security/attacks/showArticle.jhtml?articleID=228...

Just wondering if there is anything our PA can do to protect from this kind of exploit?

Re: Any defenses against slow HTTP Post DOS?

There are a few candidates in the threatvault:

This event indicates that someone want to exhaust the apache resources, as described by slowloris.

This event indicates a DOS attack against IIS server.

Among others.

There is also zone-protection but I cant find any good setting regarding "slow" connections in there (only stuff like number of concurrent sessions etc).

Edit: Hopefully these docs might be helpful:
