mfoltzgoogle has just submitted a new pull request for https://github.com/webscreens/openscreenprotocol:

== Prevent SSDP amplification attacks ==
Addresses Issue #57: [SSDP] Update proposed use of SSDP to specifically prevent SSDP amplification attacks.

This requires mitigations which will prevent an attacker from using an Open Screen Protocol implementation to target an external IP address with SSDP responses.
