Hi Derek,

thanks for the review.

'SPIT' is an acronym for 'Spam over Internet Telephony', which Wikipedia defines as 'bulk unsolicited, automatically dialled, pre-recorded phone calls using the Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP)'. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/VoIP_spam)

We will add a proper definition for SPIT.


For the DoD attack: 'DoD' actually does mean 'Department of Defence', the authors of the draft have received information that the Department of Defence plans to attack something, but because of secrecy reasons we cannot give more information at this time.

;-)

Joking apart, yes, this is a typo of 'DoS' (Denial of Service), a proper definition will be added.


Thanks for your support.


Regards, Martin
