Application Scenarios for IPv4

Application Scenarios for IPv4

Security of the IPv4 Protocol Stack

In normal situations, Net Unreachable messages, Time Exceeded messages, and Port Unreachable messages in ICMP can be correctly sent and received. When network traffic is heavy and a great number of errors occur, a NE sends a great number of ICMP messages, which increases network traffic. Receiving and processing these messages may cause NE performance to deteriorate. In addition, network attacks are usually initiated by using ICMP error messages, which may worsen network congestion.

On the NE, you can enable or disable the sending and receiving of ICMP messages.

In the inbound direction, you can control the following ICMP messages:
  • Echo Request message
  • Echo Reply message
  • Host Unreachable message
  • Time Exceeded message
  • Port Unreachable message
In the outbound direction, you can control the following ICMP messages:
  • Time Exceeded message
  • Port Unreachable message
  • Destination Unreachable message

If you disable the sending or receiving of ICMP messages, the NE does not send or receive any ICMP message. This reduces network traffic and NE burden and prevents malicious attacks.

Alternatively, you can limit the ICMP message rate and configure the NE to discard ICMP messages with the TTL 1 and ICMP messages that carry options. This reduces NE burden.
