“DDOS depends on a target, in SAFE the target is everyone’s computers,” Mr. Irvine said. “An analogy would be DDOS is like swatting a large fly, in SAFE the large fly is a mass swarm of mossies which makes it hard even with 8 arms filled with fly swatters.”
And if you can swat one then a replacement one pops up within a few miliseconds if I remember correctly
In addition of that, putting on top of the meshnet would put ddos into the history books. Each person has more control of the data flux. Surely you can ddoss your peer directly, but he will cut your line off. The person who ddos ends up wounded itself. He needs to find new peers. Basically, a fly that swat itself.
