I am new to NetBSD and was looking at it with respect to syn flooding attack
handling for some reason.
Unfortunately I dont have direct access to a netbsd machine right now and so
if somebody could please give me answer to these questions:
From very little I know there is no definite fail proof solution to syn
Best or most widely used being syn cookies / rst cookies ..
I was looking at the source code and tcp_input.c file does have all syn
But, being new wanted to know if that is on by default.
( version I am looking onto is 1.6.1 .. )
or does it have to be turned on, variables one can play with in this regard
can limits be set per port / service ??
And how well / what is the behaviour of netbsd when a default installation
is put in front a spoofed ip syn attack ?
Please ignore my naiveness, I dont have any hands on experience w.r.t netbsd
security handling / patches.
