DDoS protection with "sysctl.conf" file?

Hello,
In some tutorials, for protect a server from DoS attacks, below parameters need to change:

Code: Select all

kernel.printk = 4 4 1 7 
kernel.panic = 10 
kernel.sysrq = 0 
kernel.shmmax = 4294967296

net.ipv4.tcp_congestion_control = htcp 
net.ipv4.tcp_mem = 65536 131072 262144 
net.ipv4.udp_mem = 65536 131072 262144 
net.ipv4.tcp_rmem = 4096 87380 33554432 
net.ipv4.udp_rmem_min = 16384 
net.ipv4.tcp_wmem = 4096 87380 33554432 
net.ipv4.udp_wmem_min = 16384 
net.ipv4.tcp_max_tw_buckets = 1440000 
net.ipv4.tcp_tw_recycle = 0 
net.ipv4.tcp_tw_reuse = 1 
net.ipv4.tcp_max_orphans = 400000

net.ipv4.conf.all.rp_filter = 1
And:

Code: Select all

$ sudo sysctl -a
Is it OK?

Thank you.

For what? DDOS? So what happens if the sources are your "valid" clients?
