Re: Is it time to abandon bogon prefix filters?
>> How much does it help to filter the bogons? In one study conducted by >> Rob Thomas of a frequently attacked site, fully 60% of the naughty >> packets were obvious bogons (e.g. 127.1.2.3, 0.5.4.3, etc.) > Stated another way, you can get 60% success on bogon filtering by > ignoring the free pool if 127.1.2.3 and 0.5.4.3 are in the free pool, we have a few more /8s in the bank then we thought, eh? :) btw, patrick neglected the last sentences of that paragraph, which made me wonder what rob would actually say. luckily, in response to my post, rob replied that he/they would try to get some useful measures in the near term. i am patient. but your post makes me inclined to beg that he/that he have a few taxa within the bogon space. randy
