The NetIO Stack: Reinventing TCP/IP in Windows Vista presented at BlackhatUSA 2006

by Abolade Gbadegesin,

Summary : TCP/IP is on the front lines in defending against network attacks, from intrusion attempts to denial-of-service. Achieving resilience depends on factors from NIC driver quality up through network application behavior. Windows Vista delivers resilience, security and extensibility with the NetIO stacka re-architected and re-written TCP/IP stack. Windows Vista Network Architect Abolade Gbadegesin will provide an in-depth technical description of the new architecture and new features, and will provide an insiders view of how Microsoft listened and responded to feedback from the security community.
