So, where are static bogon filters appropriate? (loaded question
I ask because just about every 'security expert' and 'security
or 'security suggestions' has some portion that speaks to "why it's a
grand idea to have acl-lines/firewall-policy tp block 'bogon' ip space"
(for some definition of 'bogon' of course).
I suppose they're appropriate when done by network security
consultants, as it guarantees future / repeat business. :)
Especially I did never see any traffic from so called bogons. Perhaps,
bogon acls are helpful when they are configured on backbone, but not
just my 1E-10 cents :-)
With best regards,
