ISPs to share hacker info

by Nikola Strahija on April 2nd, 2005 Telcos, Internet Service Providers, equipment makers, universities and hosting companies are joining forces to exchange information about attempted hack attacks.


Arbor Networks will collect the information automatically. For instance: a denial of service attack is launched against a customer of yours. Arbor will detect the spike in traffic, check it's not event-based, and give you information to defend against the attack.

It will also collect enough information, a fingerprint, to identify the attack and pass that information to downstream service providers hit by the attack.

Some of the firms backing the network are BT, Cisco, Earthlink, Internet2, MCI, The Planet, University of Pennslyvania and Rackspace Managed Hosting.
