The past years have seen many proposals for distributed denial of service resistant architecture in the Internet. Still, such technologies have, mostly, not been deployed and there are no functioning markets for resistance against such attacks. In this presentation, we study the Internet as a business network and draw lessons for technology design. The preliminary findings indicate that the deployment incentives arise from the edges, there is an asymmetry between incentives in the uphill path and downhill path, and finally that the technologies must provide reliable and enforceable way of filtering bad traffic.
