PTS works with SUNET, Netnod to strengthen crucial public websites against attacks

Friday 27 April 2018 | 13:45 CET | News
Swedish telecoms regulator PTS said it will finance a pilot project to find ways to minimise the risk of websites crucial to civil society going down in the case of DDoS attacks or other types of disruption. The scheme will be led by the Swedish University Computer Network (SUNET) and will look at how extra stresses affect websites on the one hand, and will develop services to minimise the effects of attacks on the other.
