forgive me if I sound ignorant, but this sentence doesn't make sense to me: "This encoded information is cryptographically hashed with a secret key to form the sequence number of the SYN-ACK and sent to the client." Shouldn't it read something like "encrypted with a secret key", rather than "cryptographically hashed with a secret key"? I was thinking if it was hashed, the kernel wouldn't be able to decode it when the ack comes in.
