Definition Edit

Internet infrastructure attacks are

rare but serious attacks involv[ing] key components of the Internet infrastructure rather than specific systems on the Internet.[1]

Overview Edit

"Examples are network name servers, network access providers, and large archive sites on which many users depend. Widespread automated attacks can also threaten the infrastructure. Infrastructure attacks affect a large portion of the Internet and can seriously hinder the day-to-day operation of many sites."[2]
