The DARPA program, called Extreme DDoS Defense (XD3) looks to : • thwart DDoS attacks by dispersing cyber assets (physically and/or logically) to complicate adversarial targeting • disguise the characteristics and behaviors of those assets to confuse or deceive the adversary • blunt the effects of attacks that succeed in penetrating other defensive measures by using adaptive mitigation techniques on endpoints such as mission‐critical servers.
