  title={A Blockchain-Based Architecture for Collaborative DDoS Mitigation with Smart Contracts},
  author={B. Rodrigues and T. Bocek and Andri Lareida and David Hausheer and S. Rafati and B. Stiller},
The rapid growth in the number of insecure portable and stationary devices and the exponential increase of traffic volume makes Distributed Denial-of-Service (DDoS) attacks a top security threat to services provisioning. Existing defense mechanisms lack resources and flexibility to cope with attacks by themselves, and by utilizing other’s companies resources, the burden of the mitigation can be shared. Emerging technologies such as blockchain and smart contracts allows for the sharing of attack… Expand
