AWS Shield vs BYOB: What are the differences?

Developers describe AWS Shield as "Managed DDoS Protection". AWS Shield is a managed Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) protection service that safeguards web applications running on AWS. AWS Shield provides always-on detection and automatic inline mitigations that minimize application downtime and latency, so there is no need to engage AWS Support to benefit from DDoS protection. On the other hand, BYOB is detailed as "Build and operate your own botnet". It is an open-source project that provides a framework for security researchers and developers to build and operate a basic botnet to deepen their understanding of the sophisticated malware that infects millions of devices every year and spawns modern botnets, in order to improve their ability to develop counter-measures against these threats.

AWS Shield and BYOB can be primarily classified as "Security" tools.

BYOB is an open source tool with 3.81K GitHub stars and 794 GitHub forks. Here's a link to BYOB's open source repository on GitHub.
