How to reduce TCP SYN attacks, UDP/ICMP flooding & other virus blocking on real networks posted 11/28/2006

Hi GS,

Can you share your approaches/best practices that we can use in CISCO
IOS to reduce the effects of the below;

1. TCP SYN attacks
2. UDP flooding
3. ICMP flooding
4. Other virus blocking methods

I am thinking of the below for the above;

1. tcp intercepts - but many suggest to avoid this
2 & 3 use of "rate-limit" to lower BW values on inbound interfaces but
I am not sure how best we can do this, specially with UDP
4. use of NBAR (match protocol http url), Unicast RPF (stop spoofing IP) etc

pls share your configs etc here for us.
