I have been educating myself lately on client/server programming, and then got into raw socket programming and packet injection.
Can you tell me some of the good and bad things packet injection can be used for?
I believe I read an article once a while back about an ISP in China using packet injection with a TCP reset signal inside it to stop clients from downloading torrents and other files (piracy).
In the network security field, what incredible things related to improving society and/or improving network security, by way of improving firewalls or Intrusion Detection Systems, can raw socket packet injection do?
I am close to finishing school with a Bachelor's Degree in Computer & Network Security, and I enjoy programming (hobbyist). It would be great to continue educating myself on something pertaining to my career path as well as possibly discover something incredible in the process!
Open my mind!
Thanks a lot for your time! Move this to another board if it doesn't belong here, but I believe it makes more sense to be in Programming than in Networking . Thanks, take care.[/b]
Take special interest in security regarding packet injection. Any good blackhat will expose your failures. I personally used to use an IE security bug to inject admin packets and them force an ignore system side when it checked...as well an old gnu-emacs file send bug(same concept) to gain root or sys priv on unix/linux boxes. If you want pm me a BBM or an I'm contact i'd love to share what I know.
