Theoretically it should be a two way street to any address I can receive from, thus if I can't send to it, I shouldn't be receiving from it. I realize this is not currently a feature of any router (to my knowledge), but could it be implemented into some NOSs fairly easily and jerry-rigged into others for the time being.

NTT too has deployed rate limiters on all external facing interfaces on
the GIN backbone - for UDP/11211 traffic - to dampen the negative impact
of open memcached instances on peers and customers.

The toxic combination of 'one spoofed packet can yield multiple reponse
packets' and 'one small packet can yield a very big response' makes the
memcached UDP protocol a fine example of double trouble with potential
for severe operational impact.

Kind regards,


Hope one day the 3rd mode of uRPF will be something else than a plan ...
uRPF is not very usefull when multi homed. And as far as I know, multi
homed networks are increasing as fast as PNI development ;)
