Sounds like the only solution is to place a packet 'box' in front
of the machine that throttles SYN packets to an acceptable rate.
We now have; repeaters, bridges, routers, switches, NATs, and TCP/IP
redirectors, maybe we'll get packet throttles, or packet throttling
Might as well build a box to throttle all packets or handshakes
of type 'X'. Once the SYN defense is solved, some new flood attack
Anyone volunteer to build the ASIC?
