Slow HTTP result due to the Denial of Service attack by the application layer of a program or system. It is also potent enough to knock down a server with a limited amount of resources. As the attack happens slowly in speed and in low volume, they can hardly be detected and can cause equal damage like a high volume DDoS. Here, I am explaining to you how it happens.Slow HTTP attacks are based on the fact that by design, the HTTP protocol requires the requests to be completely received by the server before these requests are processed. If the HTTP request transfer is very slow, or if the requested transfer is incomplete, the entire data will be kept busy serving by the server. Hence, if there will be too many resources busy with the server, it will create a denial of service. Primarily, there are three types of attacks on your server caused by slow HTTP:#1. Slowloris attack: It happens due to the slow down of headers when you open a large number of connections with your web server and keep them running by sending headers slowly, but never ends the process. If the connections are not closed with the server due to incompletion of the request, all the resources on the server will eventually be exhausted leading to block the legitimate requests. #2. R-U-Dead-Yet attack: This attack happens due to sending a never-ending POST body, instead of sending never-ending headers and forcing the server to keep the connections running. When the server is occupied with all the resources, it would hardly be able to serve the legitimate requests. #3. Slow Read: The above-discussed attacks are the reason behind the slow request sending by a web server. However, the slow reads are the results of very slow reading responses from a server. It displays a very low client receive buffer size, then triggers a huge response from the server, and takes minutes to read a single response. Concurrent creation of multiple such types of connections can consume all the server resources and then lead to Denial of Service. Slow HTTP attacks can be as difficult as volumetric DDoS attacks if they are not handled properly. However, there is a bulk of moving parts in the Nginx configuration and users should understand them well before attempting to random copy/paste changes. Another fix to this problem could also be rejecting very low buffer window sizes of client-side receive; however, that path is still to be explored yet.
