SC-5(2): Excess Capacity / Bandwidth / Redundancy
(Not part of any baseline)
- NIST Special Publication 800-53 Revision 5:
- SC-5(2): Capacity, Bandwidth, and Redundancy
The information system manages excess capacity, bandwidth, or other redundancy to limit the effects of information flooding denial of service attacks.
Managing excess capacity ensures that sufficient capacity is available to counter flooding attacks. Managing excess capacity may include, for example, establishing selected usage priorities, quotas, or partitioning.
