Do all versions of linux permit traffic over raw sockets ?
It seems that in Windows, the releases after Windows XP with SP2 have the ability to send traffic over raw sockets but has been restricted in two ways:
- TCP data cannot be sent over raw sockets.
- UDP datagrams with invalid source addresses cannot be sent over raw sockets. The IP source address for any outgoing UDP datagram must exist on a network interface or the datagram is dropped.
Are there any similar security measures in Linux ? Any ideas ?
