I suppose another basic but effective method of prevention would be
egress filtering. An increasing minority of network providers are
instituting it, but it doesn't seem like it will be a widespread thing
in the near-term.
Yes, but egress filtering is only effective by far. Anyone can forge the
source to an IP address that belongs to one of the /16's a provider
It will help of course, but really not The solution... Or is there one?
