Cloud computing provides scalable and on-demand infrastructure, which seems to be the perfect way to host a botnet. This paper focuses on cloud-based botnets to perform legal DDoS resilience tests. We model the cost of such botnets and provide both technical and economical insights into their usage for controlled DDoS attacks. While these purpose-built botnets appear to be more expensive than online DDoS booter services, they remain affordable in the context of legal audits.
