I was wondering if someone have a nice idea on how to use squid to 
protect against DOS\DDOS http\https attacks.

The basic way I was thinking is rate limiting by counting the client IP 
page HITs but I am unsure about it since it can actually catch the good 
guys and bite my squid setup.

The other way I was thinking was some kind of a challenge like a captcha 

Also I have seen something like JavaScript browser challenge being used.

What do you think would be the right choice?

If you have another idea please send me or the list an email.
