comment Is TCP more secure than UDP?
@Ulkoma Nope. Reliability has nothing to do with confidentiality or integrity here. It is what the most obvious definition is: With TCP you're more confident that stuff will go from A to B and arrive there than with UDP (you know, because TCP verifies that the packet was received and re-sends in case it wasn't)

comment What is TCP spoofing?
It's just a poorly worded answer. Philip just confused terminology, which confused you (and, confused me as well). TCP spoofing refers to the network engineering process of improving the performance of the protocol due to inadequacies in certain conditions (more on that). IP spoofing is falsifying the IP address to make the connection appear as it's coming from somewhere other than the real source. The spoofing that Philip is talking about is modifying the content of a TCP message in transmit (lack of integrity).

comment Is TCP more secure than UDP?
As far as I know, and please correct me if I'm wrong, once you talk about TCP/UDP and spoofing, then it's automatically assumed you're talking about making a connection (in case of TCP) appear to be coming from a source that isn't the real source. Unless of course you mean the network engineering process Protocol Spoofing en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Protocol_spoofing#TCP_spoofing (and I don't think you're talking about that)

comment Is TCP more secure than UDP?
Oh, I'm sorry. Perhaps I wasn't clear. I was politely saying that you're last paragraph is poorly worded, of low quality, and possibly stating incorrect information (unless you elaborate). I wasn't asking for extra info, I was telling you to fix your answer (in case it's wrong, which is only clear if you elaborate what you mean by spoofing).

comment Is TCP more secure than UDP?
Could you please expand on the last paragraph? What exactly do you mean by "spoof"? As far as I know, TCP isn't not only a tad bit harder to spoof, it's actually a lot harder to spoof.. like really really harder.
