IP flooding and IRQ-threads.

Hello all,

I'm trying to improve the security of my embedded system (running Linux 3.12.35).

My question is :
What is the best way, exepting the firewall, to better protect my system against IP flooding ?
--> Is it a good idea to do something around the IRQ thread mechanism (such as limiting the amount of interrupt within a given amount of time).

Any advices will be very welcome...

Thank you !
