Important New Internet Standard
Internet security guru Steve Bellovin proposed today an important new Internet standard, RFC 3514, which creates a new “evil bit” in Internet Protocol packet headers. The evil bit is required to be set in all malicious packets. RFC 3514 fully examines the ramifications of this innovative proposal, including a discussion of what existing systems must do to maintain their current behavior. [Via Freedom-to-Tinker.]
This should be implmented today, April 1st!
