Protecting a network from DoS attacks

How do I protect my network from denial-of-service (DoS) attacks?

There are quite a number of things one can do, depending upon the type of the attack you are protecting against. To discuss them all would take far too much space here. Fortunately, there are some good papers available on the Internet which you can use for reference. Four of these are:

Strategies to protect against distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks from Cisco, dated Feb. 17, 2000.

Tech tip on denial of service from CERT.

Securing against denial-of-service attacks by Licoln Stein.
