The transmission control protocol is the workhorse protocol of the Internet. Most of the data passing through the Internet transits the network using TCP layered atop the Internet protocol (IP). Monitoring, capturing, filtering, and blocking traffic on high-speed Internet links requires the ability to directly process TCP packets in hardware. High-speed network intrusion detection and prevention systems guard against several types of threats. As the gap between network bandwidth and computing… CONTINUE READING
