What hardware is used to prevent a DDoS attack on a network layer?
This question is for my project which I am doing. I have a game server and I need to simulate an attack - an SYN flood. So what hardware should I use to prevent it.
My assumption is that to place a IDS after a firewall so that it will detect unwanted traffic and filter it out. Also IP filtering method can be used for example bogon filtering.
Please let me know if these assumptions are correct, and if you have more info.
