DoS Protection

How do I go about triggering and monitoring DoS Protection in 7.1.5? I cannot find anywhere in the GUI to help me with this.

I imagine short of buying an attack against yourself on the darkweb or whatnot, you'd probably have to modify the filter to have a very low threshold and just simulate one that way.

 

you can google methods of doing this, or use hping3 with Kali Linux or whatnot.

 

just use extreme caution and ensure you have full consent from the ISP down to the corporate level.

 

obviously it's best to do this only in a lab environment.

DoS Protection profiles need to be built out under the object tab, then you need to actually create the DoS protection profile utilizing those profiles that you setup. Check below.

I've done that multiple times, but have no way of triggering/monitoring the DoS protection. I know how to configure/make a DoS Protection profile.

I've been using:

Or just running a .bat file through a loop:

 

:loop

ping <ip address> -l 990 -w 1 -n 1

goto loop:

 

I'm hiking up the throughput, but I will try using hping3 on Kali.

 

Thanks!

Fair warning; usually ISPs have statements in the contracts explicitly denying the right to DoS the network, since you don't appear to be doing this in a lab enviroment if you don't get your ISPs proper consent before doing things like this you risk them dumping you as a subscriber.
