Today is the 2nd anniversary of the nation-scale DDoS attacks against Estonia.
Here's the very first blog post I made on these developments on Saturday, the 28th of April 2007, as things started happening. Here's a follow-up post a couple of days later. Reading these now, they really feel sort of historic. Things changed in April 2007.
Today's first presentation was by president of Estonia, Mr. Toomas Hendrik Ilves.
I was really impressed by the talk by Mr. Ilves. It was a rhetorically sound and masterfully executed talk by an European statesman. And even though it was on the topic of my own expertise, I still found it insightful. It was also refreshing to listen him mention technical details like botnets, DNSSEC and DDoS. Impressive. Watch this man.
