So, I asked to look into the viability and usefullness of the "Verisign
Internet Defence Network" service.

I don't claim to be any kind of expert in DDoS mitigation, but some of the
claims made by the product descriptions seem suspect to me.

it claims to be "Carrier-agnostic and ISP-neutral", yet "When an event is
detected, Verisign will work with the customer to redirect Internet traffic
destined for the protected service to a Verisign Internet Defense Network

anyone here have any comments on how this works, and how effective it will be
vs. dealing directly with your upstream providers and getting them to assist
in shutting down the attack?
