Have any of the mining pools considered using a DDOS prevention service like CloudFlare?

http://www.cloudflare.com/

It seems like a good fit and it's free.

Disclaimer: I don't work for CloudFlare, I just came across them on TechCrunch.

Seems more like a CDN/cache to me. CDNs tend to be better for HTTP GET's on static content

Mining using RPC calls. So if someone were to DDoS (via HTTP calls) then a CDN wouldn’t do much as those calls will be passed straight up the line to the 'origin' server (the mining pool in this case).

What it would help prevent (assuming they actually support RPC calls over their CDN) would be packet flooding - such as a UDP flood - on the origin server (mining pool server). But then its a case of 'how much DDoS could cloudfare take before they fall over?'. Theres the additional case of does their AUP state that if you use too much bandwidth/attract massive DDoS they will boot you off.

DDoS protection doesn't usually work against legit traffic flooding, just saying. (:

Ya, I guess CloudFlare isn't an ideal fit, but DDOS isn't a new problem. I wonder how much the likes of slush have reviewed existing anti-DDOS services..?

Prolexic
Blacklotus

These 2 are fantastic for DDoS mitigation. (Lulzsec, the group notorious for the successful DDoS on CIA.GOV
failed to so much as lag prolexic)
