7.22 Spoofing

Spoofing refers to attempts to masquerade as another host when sending network transmissions. The cfservd program which can be used to transfer files or activate cfengine remotely attempts to unmask such attempts by performing double reverse lookups in the name service. This verifies by a trusted server that the socket address and the host name are really who they claim to be.
