Gladius – The Rising Star of Blockchain Security

  • One promising ICO is Gladius, which aims to first change the way DDoS attacks are dealt with using blockchain technology and some ingenious ideas.
  • To see why Gladius is so exciting, it’s important to take a quick look at just how damaging DDoS attacks are, and why it’s so vital to find new ways to challenge them.
  • This way, when one member of the network is faced with a DDoS attack, their peers can ‘rent’ some of their spare bandwidth.
  • This extra data can help absorb the attack, so the victim’s server isn’t overwhelmed by malicious traffic and brought down.
