packets with no intention to complete the 3-way handshake protocol. They target the half open connection TCP queue and plan to fill it up with requests so that the server freezes. The server is busy in utilizing all its resources in receiving, storing the SYN packets and sending out ACK for those packets.

Here the SYN cookie mechanism is turned on, so the queue is cleared when the queue is about to get full. Queue is not a necessity but only a performance improvement in the 3 way handshake. So this is the reason why the request for a new telnet connection goes through though the SYN flooding attack is in progress. We then turn of the syn cookie mechanism at the server so that the SYN flooding attack is successful. Task 2: TCP RST Attacks on telnet and ssh Connections: First we establish a telnet connection to the server and obtain the next sequence number of the packet so that we can spoof the RST packet. We get the next sequence number from the Wireshark capture of the telnet connection from the Observer and Server

Attacker: Then the attacker sends out TCP RST packets using the netwox tool with number 40. The attacker sends a spoofed RST packet as though its from the Server (10.0.2.2) to the Oberver (10.0.2.15) with the next sequence number obtained from the wireshark. Also used Scapy to conduct the TCP RST attack

The project is no full completed because there were so many errors. But I try to solve it and its still not working. I will definitely go through you on this project.
