Evil Bit Added to TCP/IP Packets 319

Posted by CmdrTaco
from the well-thats-a-good-idea dept.
Absolut Ralts notes that " RFC 3514 is now available. It provides for an additional so called 'Evil Bit' that can be used to determine the nature of the TCP/IP packet. This should vastly simplify networking and internet security, and prevent the beepers of tired sysadmins from going off and interfering with Warcraft III!"
