Czech title
Nástroj pro konfiguraci potlačení DDoS útoků

Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks are a common security concern for computer networks and the services using them. One of the forms of defence is to use the DCPro DDoS Protector device developed by the CESNET association. The DDoS Protector actively mitigates ongoing attacks aimed at the protected network. The mitigation device is configurable using so-called mitigation rules. The goal of this work was to design and implement a command-line configuration tool for the DDoS Protector. A part of this work involved the creation of a reusable configuration API in Python. The configuration tool was implemented in Python using the API. It has been tested and successfully deployed as a part of the DCPro DDoS Protector package.
