A Look Back at "Security Problems in the TCP/IP Protocol Suite"

Bellovin, Steven Michael

About fifteen years ago, I wrote a paper on security problems in the TCP/IP protocol suite. In particular, I focused on protocol-level issues, rather than implementation flaws. It is instructive to look back at that paper, to see where my focus and my predictions were accurate, where I was wrong, and where dangers have yet to happen. This is a reprint of the original paper, with added commentary.
