> +to a new endpoint as part of an established QUIC connection.
+##### On-Path Active Attacks
+An attacker that can cause a packet it observes to no longer reach its intended
+destination is considered an on-path attacker.  Such an attacker generally is
+present between the QUIC client and server, and a QUIC endpoint is required to
+send packets through this attacker to establish connectivity on a given path.
+An on-path attacker can:
+- Inspect packets
+- Modify IP and UDP packet headers
+- Inject new packets
+- Delay packets
