What is UTRS?

UTRS is a system that helps mitigate large infrastructure attacks by leveraging an existing network of cooperating BGP speakers such as ISPs, hosting providers and educational institutions that automatically distributes verified BGP-based filter rules from victim to cooperating networks.

Victims can now effectively alleviate attacks quickly and across the world at lightning speed. Additionally, by using UTRS, operators will also be stopping the attack traffic at the source, saving many would-be attack packets from their own network, as well as preventing them from taking up unnecessary network resources at every other network in between.

Mitigating attacks is a time consuming and technically burdensome process for operators
