Abstract

DDoS attacks are becoming an increasing reality of operating a business with an internet
presence. These attacks can cost an incredible amount of money, not just in lost uptime, but
also a loss of consumer trust and crisis PR. Last year alone DDoS attacks amounted to a $150
billion loss, while on average corporations can spend over $5000 a month on protection
from other DDoS protection services, even if they never suffer an attack. This happens while
a majority of computing power and bandwidth in the world goes unused. Gladius envisions
a future where these vast resources can be utilized to mitigate attacks. (Incapsula and

By leveraging the blockchain to allow communication between computers, and a pay as
you go marketplace, Gladius can facilitate the creation of the extremely fault tolerant and
inexpensive pools tailored to a client’s specific needs. Asside from just filtering traffic, these
pools will be able to accelerate content as well.

By decentralizing and removing the middleman, the whole nature of protecting a website
will change. Buisness that previously couldn’t afford adequate protection can purchase
services that perfectly fit their budget. Those paying hundreds of thousands of dollars for a
service they never fully utilize can start paying for only exactly what they use – and for much
less. In addition, customers who are tired of paying for a high speed internet connection
(that is only used for a few hours a day) can finally put that connection to good use.
