Black Hole Policies of Alibaba Cloud Security

In this article, you will get some information on the black hole policy of Alibaba Cloud Security.

DDoS attacks severely impair not only victims, but also the entire cloud network. Besides, DDoS defense costs a lot, the biggest among which is the bandwidth cost.

Alibaba Cloud purchases bandwidth from ISPs. ISPs will not clean out DDoS attack traffic when calculating the bandwidth cost, but will directly charge Alibaba Cloud on the consumed bandwidth.

Alibaba Cloud Security potentially defends against DDoS attacks for Alibaba Cloud users free of charge at a limited cost, but when the attacking traffic exceeds the threshold, Alibaba Cloud will block the traffic to the IP address under attack.

You can check the current DDoS mitigation capacity of your ECS, SLB, or EIP instances here.
