Abstract:Cybercrime is on the rise and distributed denial of services attacks are among the most used by hacktivists, criminals, and even states. This article focuses on a Dutch solution to that problem, namely the Trusted Networks Initiative. The initiative aims at a global trust concept that provides website operators with a last resort option in case a large or long-lasting DDoS attack cannot be mitigated by other anti-DDoS means. The paper describes the foundational principles of the initiative, and more specifically the intended solution via the trusted routing concept.
