AWS Shield Advanced gets updated for Automatic Application Layer DDoS Mitigation

AWS has rolled out an update for Shield Advanced, managed Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) protection service - Automatic Application Layer DDoS Mitigation. 

This update will help customers mitigate potential threatens that might cause application downtime. Additionally, it automatically creates, tests, and deploys AWS WAF rules to mitigate layer 7 DDoS events as managed DDoS protection.

How does Automatic Application Layer DDoS Mitigation work? 

  1. Advanced Shield will establish 30-day traffic baseline into each protected resource.
  2. Once Automatic mitigation is enabled, then Shield Managed Rules group will create AWS WAF rules.
  3. Significant traffic deviation from baseline will be termed as potential DDoS event.
  4. Post event detection, Shield Advanced will try to identify a signature. Once the signature is identified, WAF rules will be created to mitigate that signature.
  5. Customers can create CloudWatch alerts to have an update on requests status.
