  • Detecting and Preventing Unauthorized Outbound Traffic by Brian Wippich - October 29, 2007 

    This paper will describe some of the risks associated with outbound traffic, methods for securing this traffic, techniques for circumventing these controls, and methods for detecting and preventing these techniques. There is no way to eliminate all risk associated with outbound traffic short of closing all ports. However, a good understanding of these risks should allow you to make informed decisions on securing this traffic.
