The general has to deploy defenses against all potential vectors of attack. He doesn't just trust the trenches at the front line for all his security. He will deploy troops to the front line, as well as at high-value assets behind the lines. He will deploy a variety of anti-submarine and anti-surface ship defenses. He will deploy a variety of anti-air assets to protect against the various air threats. This concept of multiple overlapping defensive measures is known as defense-in-depth . A similar system can be applied to network security.

The preprocessors act as interpreters for the Snort detection engine. Another real strength of the preprocessors is their ability to defeat many IDS evasions techniques. Chapter 4 discusses the ways that attackers go after your systems and also the ways they try to trick, hide from, or simply overwhelm your IDS defenses. Flexibility Snort is very flexible in the ways it can be deployed. Chapter 4 through Chapter 8 detail the ways that Snort can be used, from a simple network sniffer to a true gateway IDS that kills a dangerous network conversation in its tracks.

If the sender does not receive an ACK, it resends the message. If a receiving machine needed to send an ACK for every packet, it would result in incredible overhead for the system and the network. To reduce the overhead, a mechanism called windowing is used. The receiving system advertises a certain number of packets it can receive at a time (essentially an input buffer size). The sending system watches for an ACK after the designated number of packets is sent. If an ACK is not received, data will be retransmitted from the point of the last ACK.
