Hello all.


I saw that we can protect syn-flooding using iptables like this.

$IPTABLES -N syn-flood
$IPTABLES -A INPUT -p tcp --syn -j syn-flood
$IPTABLES -A syn-flood -m limit --limit 1/s --limit-burst 4 -j RETURN
$IPTABLES -A syn-flood -j DROP

But I think that anyone can't protect syn-flooding attack completely using 
this rule, just some legal client can't connect the server because the rate 
limit rule in busy system.

I guess that any firewall can't protect syn-flooding except tcp intercept 
method.right?
(but tcp intercept requires so much memory)

any idea?


Thanks in advance.
