+address spoofing, by limiting the number of packets sent to a spoofed address,
+unless an attacker is able to also receive packets sent to that address.
+This section describes the intended security properties of connection migration
+when under various types of attack, as described in more detail by {{?RFC3552}}.
+For this purpose, attacks are divided into passive and active attacks, passive
+attackers having the capability to read packets from the network and active
+attackers having the capability to write packets into the network.
+Attackers are additionally categorized as either on-path attackers or off-path
+attackers (see Section 3.5 of {{?RFC3552}}); an on-path attacker is on the
