Re: mesh networks / iOSPF

There's been some chat lately about adding features to IRCD code to allow for multiple server links, creating a mesh type network map. does the current hybrid not support this already? (i take it by your post it seems no and this might be a stupid question.) what currently would stop from someone d...

because the hosts some people choose on other networks are EXTREMELY annoying. Yes, I know that people still create incredibly annoying real, valid hosts, but they would be so much more prevalent if all users could choose their own. one problem i have with user spoofing is that it redirects DoS to ...

yes that is true. but the thing is we can never totally abolish everything but we can help prevent things. for example bopm will help reduce proxy floods but sometimes it wont totally stop them. it also helps the user's mentality. some users just feel more secure if they have a spoofed adress. yes i...

also it will help with insecure clients. lets say a client forgot to patch an exploit, it will stop a user from directly hacking into thier box.

because first of all not all stupid botnet kiddies have abilities to take the entire isp offline, they may only have like 20 or so drones and can take a few users offline. secondly even kiddies know if they packet a large ISP they are gonna get investigated and get a huge fine or be jailed.

so if these spoofs make people unbannable does unreal ircd servers and other spoofing servers suffer from this problem? also if they dont suffer how do they implement correctly? one idea is to create a hash for each network. it is randomly generated at install and the same hash is given to all serve...

this is an idea that could be interesting, and i think might just work. have that ascii picture authentication but make it not required. if the client does not give the passphrase then it gets a special flag marked on it as a possible bot. the server then traces over the network to find similiar cli...

well the thing is that it is from random hosts. these worms/bots infect anything they can so when they connect you get 800 different bots from hundreds of different subnets. you would have to practically kline the whole internet to stop them :shock:
