Google Launches ‘Project Shield’

Google launched their DDoS mitigation service which bears an interesting description:

Project Shield is an initiative launched by Google Ideas to use Google’s own Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attack mitigation technology to protect free expression online. The service allows other websites to serve their content through Google’s infrastructure without having to move their hosting location.

I requested an invite for one of my projects (or clients, rather). I cannot disclose whom they are, but I’m interested to hear what Google might say. Probably a generic decline as an answer if they’re uncomfortable with my client’s right to adequate protection of their ‘freedom of expression’ online

In any case, this might be good. Always interesting with ‘new’ stuff.
