Subject: [gentoo-security] iptables window of opportunity at startup

Hi,

The current behaviour of a default Gentoo install is to load iptables
after the network has been initialised. Upon shutting down likewise
iptables is shutdown then the network interface. This strikes me as
presenting a window of opportunity when the computer is exposed without
iptables, albeit a small one.

Do people on this list think there is any value in re-arranging this
order by default?

Jon
