DDoS testing missions enable enterprises, operators and governments to test their resilience against DDoS and evaluate their DDoS mitigation infrastructure.

DDoS Testing

  • Denial of Service (DoS) & Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) are a significant risk to critical infrastructure and business actors. DDoS testing will show you how you are protected, and how you can defend.

    Quant DoS testing: Testing websites and Internet applications without taking them down
    Quant DoS testing of websites and Internet applications is an area where P1 Security has pioneered several techniques which are still yet to be matched by other companies. We can test websites and Internet application for their DoS susceptibility without conducting a real Denial of Service. We can evaluate and pinpoint problems in deployed solutions such as: Anycast DNS resolving, DDoS mitigation appliances (Arbor Networks, Load Balancers, …), SaaS availability services, Round-robin distribution, multi-tiered applications, etc.

    IP DoS simulation: Internet Infrastructure and services load testing
    P1 Security has provided several operators, banks, mobile financial services and enterprises with DoS testing of their infrastructure. We use farms of servers to simulate for a short period of time a load comparable to what Denial of Service might deliver.

    Telecom DoS simulation: SS7, SIGTRAN, IMS, LTE Diameter, LTE S1AP, X2AP telecom signaling load testing
    Using our unique capabilities for telecom and mobile signaling manipulation, P1 Security conduct evaluation of resilience of both network architecture and individual network elements in front of Denial of Service attacks. This combines both load testing based on network load generation and robustness testing based on fuzzing techniques. This approach demonstrates a level and diversity matching real conditions, showing unavailability, vulnerabilities and instabilities where traditional testing and call generation techniques fail to reproduce or show problem.

  • Quant DoS testing
