Re: ICMP Attacks???????

Thank you Danny! This is exactly the sort of thing I was getting at. You've
basically laid out the algorithm for tracing an attack to a specific port
on your router. Now what we need to do is build a tool that can automate
this procedure, perhaps by using an "expect" script or something similar
like Python with PIPE.

I suspect that this part would be a lot easier if some easy to use tools
exist. Ever since I heard that IOPS was being formed I've been curious
whether or not that would become a venue for building these kind of tools.
Perhaps if someone from IOPS would come to Phoenix and tell us what they
are up to, we might find some more ways to encourage this kind of
inter-network cooperation.
