SubjectRe: [RFC Editor: RFC1948 on Sequence Number Attacks]
Date
I'd love to know that fixing all those things would have been put into
the kernel; I know that there's a lot of cooperation requested when running
modern operating systems, but more safety seems even better to me.

Just my comment about random numbers: yes! I noticed that new
connections on my host start with a very determinable sequence of port
numbers ... would it break things to randomize this using the new
wonderful random functions the Linux kernel has? (Hmm, let me try it ...)

I'm very happy that Linus implemented better random numbers, even
though he hates PGP.

(Off-topic note: does "wine sol" use this new random number generator?)
