Hierarchy Level


Enable prevention of Land attacks by combining the SYN flood defense with IP spoofing protection. Land attacks occur when an attacker sends spoofed IP packets with headers containing the target’s IP address for the source and destination IP addresses. The attacker sends these packets with the SYN flag set to any available port. The packets induce the target to create empty sessions with itself, filling its session table and overwhelming its resources.
