6.14 Reverse Connect ToC Previous Next

Reverse connect allows a Server to initiate the connection to a Client (open the socket sending a HEL message). This results in an additional security concern for the Client, in that the Client needs to validate that the connection is from an appropriate Server and not a denial of service attack. If the Server does not respond in a timely manner to the open SecureChannel request the Client should close the channel.
