Methods and Systems for Reducing Unwanted Data Traffic in a Computer Network

Abstract

A method for reducing unwanted data traffic in a computer network due to a Distributed Reflection Denial of Service (DRDoS) attack. The method comprises operating a filtering module in a normal mode or a blocking mode to allow or block requests from being communicated within a computer network in response to data from a honeypot device in the computer network. The method allows the honeypot device to continue to monitor further attack requests that are received during the DRDoS attack.
