A draft security assessment of IP
, which may one day become an Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) RFC, has been announced. "This document is the result of an assessment the IETF specifications
of the Internet Protocol (IP), from a security point of view.
Possible threats were identified and, where possible, countermeasures were proposed. Additionally, many implementation flaws that
have led to security vulnerabilities have been referenced in the hope
that future implementations will not incur the same problems.
Furthermore, this document does not limit itself to performing a
security assessment of the relevant IETF specifications, but also
provides an assessment of common implementation strategies found in
the real world.
