Kurzfassung englisch:
E-voting is the stress point of e-government regarding security
requirements. This paper discusses the first known distributed denial of service
attack (DDoS) worldwide against a legally binding remote electronic voting
channel. In particular, the security considerations, the topology of the attack,
and the specific countermeasures are described. The focus of this paper is on
analyzing the experience and providing lessons learned. The lessons based on
the concrete experience of this case study have been classified by the legal,
technical, and operational aspects for handling DDoS attacks against e-
government. Furthermore the relationships and interactions between these three
aspects are illustrated.
