Add a protection agains DoS attacks
-----------------------------------

                 Key: DIRSERVER-1260
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DIRSERVER-1260
             Project: Directory ApacheDS
          Issue Type: New Feature
    Affects Versions: 1.5.4
            Reporter: Emmanuel Lecharny
             Fix For: 1.5.5


A malicious user can send hand crafted PDUs which can break the server in OOM errors. Another
kind of attack would be to send big images, leading to OOM too.

We must implement some protection against such DoS attacks (which may not be malicious).
