: Core Security, DoS
Denial of Service is tackled by adopting several network-based strategies. However, system architecture should be resilient to such attacks as well.

Protect against Denial of Service attacks by setting resource limit. This can be done by per process resource management or by adopting operating system’s resource management features.
Postfix has resource limitation built in each program.
