CPNI published a security assessment of the IP

CPNI has just published a new document on the security of the Internet Protocol.

"Much of the effort of the security community on the Internet protocols did not result in official documents (RFCs) being issued by the IETF (Internet Engineering Task Force) leading to a situation in which 'known' security problems have not always been addressed by all vendors," the report states. "As a result, any system built in the future according to the official TCP/IP specifications might reincarnate security flaws that have already hit our communication systems in the past."
