Subject [jira] Updated: (DIRSERVER-1260) Add a protection agains DoS attacks
Date Mon, 01 Dec 2008 22:54:44 GMT


Emmanuel Lecharny updated DIRSERVER-1260:

One idea would be to limit the incoming PDU size to a certain size. If it exceeds this size,
then the connection is closed, and the PDU is discarded. This size will be configurable, and
be a part of the server.xml file.

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).
