To ensure the quality of Anti-DDoS products, the Ministry of Information and Communications also clearly guides the criteria and conditions that need to be met for each group of requirements. 

Cụ thể, với nhóm yêu cầu về hiệu năng xử lý, sản phẩm Anti-DDoS cần đảm bảo rằng độ trễ của gói tin được xử lý không vượt quá 3 ms; cho phép xử lý các cuộc tấn công từ chối dịch vụ phân tán - DDoS băng thông tối thiểu 1Gbps/1 thiết bị; đảm bảo khả năng phát hiện và chặn lọc lưu lượng tấn công tối thiểu 80%; cùng khả năng bảo vệ lưu lượng sạch tối thiểu 85%...

For the group of requirements for protection, according to the recommendation of the Ministry of Information and Communications, the Anti-DDoS product must ensure that the customer's service is still working properly before at least DDoS attacks: Flood attack bandwidth, resource exhaustion attack via TCP (transmission control protocol - PV), attack using invalid packets, attack sending packets/requests with high frequency and suddenly, attacks through user behavior analysis, the ability to block and filter packets according to ALC usage policy (ALC is an access control list – PV).
