ICS OT Application-Level DoS Attack

A Denial of Service (DoS) attack can cripple your business operations or do even worse to your physical infrastructure. How will you find and stop such an attack? How will your personnel perform when the system is in a degraded state? This scenario-based lab presents just such an attack on the OT network—a DoS attack at the application layer, aimed at disrupting normal operations. The DoS attack takes place when a malicious entity generates a large number of connections to the server to block legitimate applications from connecting to the victim server. This advanced lab challenges you to find, neutralize and contain an attack aimed at bringing down the OT network. Can you find and mitigate the attack?


  • ICS OT Application-Level DoS Attack

Who Should Take This Course:

Security practitioners, incident responders, and individuals with intermediate to advanced knowledge in networking, DoS mitigation and incident response. An intermediate to advance knowledge and familiarity with using the Unix/Linux command line, a working understanding of networking and filtering concepts (TCP/IP, DNS, etc.), and basic web application knowledge (HTTP, URL parameters, etc.) are strongly recommended.

About This Course:

Lab content within this course takes place within a Linux virtual machine environment. This advanced lab simulates a typical OT network and requires the learner to exercise their discovery and mitigation skills to identify, analyze, and neutralize such an attack. Learners will use their skills as an incident responder to work through the lab and neutralize the attack. To receive a certificate of completion and earn 2 Group A CPE credits towards (ISC)2 credentials, all objectives within the virtual lab environment must be met, a course evaluation completed and a score of 70% or higher on the final assessment.
