Is there any chances to see the lifetime patch integrated
into freebsd ? This patch is very useful to enforce timeout
for connections and there is a version for IPFW2 against

Also there is a type of timeout features which could be
useful both for security or state track tuning, those similar
to Cisco's CBAC global timeouts or the pf.conf's set timeout
options (see
and pf.conf(5) readable on Specially, CBAC
does a great work against syn flood & co. Some options may
also be useful against scan. And one can use state timeout
to agressively drop unresponsive/congested/slow connections.

just a few feature suggestions ;)

Semper ego auditor tantum ? Nunquamne reponam ?
