Protocol Attacks

A Protocol Attack is a type of DDoS attack which targets how internet protocols facilitate how computers communicate over the internet and aim to exhaust server or firewall resources.

Protocol attacks are designed to eat up the processing capacity of network infrastructure resources like servers, firewalls, and load balancers by targeting Network Layer 3 and Layer 4 with malicious connection requests.
