Re: large campus network ... sugestions
I didn't explain well... L7 filtering is easily defeated by SSL-wrapping
any TCP-service on 443 port so you can install a SSL'rized SSH or Squid
server (for instance) on that port and use it to freely surf the net :)
Your firewall will only see aparently-legit SSL connections to an
aparently-legit destination port (443). Hacker win, admin loose :-)
I repeat it: I don't know of any solution able to defeat this and would
like to know if you have some idea to detect these more-or-less "advanced"
