Revised draft on ICMP attacks

I have published a revision of my draft on ICMP attacks against TCP. Some new stuff you may find interesting is a corner case for the attack against the PMTUD mechanism, that could allow an attacker to freeze TCP connections, even those secured by means of IPSec. You can find that stuff in Section 7.1 of the draft. This revision also addresses some recent discussions at the TCPM WG mailing-list.

The draft is available at http://www.gont.com.ar/drafts/draft-gont-tcpm-icmp-attacks-05.txt (http://www.gont.com.ar/draft/icmp-attacks-against-tcp.html)

Feedback is welcome, noise should go to /dev/null.
