right... sure.

csail had a project for a while... spoofer project?

I think the last I looked they reported ONLY 35% or so coverage of
proper filtering. Looking at:

though they report 86% non-spoofable, that seems very high to me.

some of the 20% seems to be very highspeed connected end hosts and at
a 70:1 amplification ratio you don't need much bandwidth to fill a 1g
pipe, eh?
