What is TDoS?
TDoS attacks generally follow the same model as the more traditional data network denial of service—unauthorized users flood the system with too many access requests and prevent legitimate users from accessing the system. With TDoS, the objective is to make a significant number of phone calls and to keep those calls up for long durations, or to simply overwhelm agent or circuit capacity. By keeping long duration calls active, the attacker prevents voice network resources from being used by legitimate callers. This not only impairs voice network availability in general, but can also be used as a means to enable other forms of fraud and misuse. The impact to an organizationwhen attackers tie up every available voice circuit can be a catastrophic loss of the ability to conduct business at even the most basic level; the subsequent loss of business and revenue can be devastating.
