Discussion

Source routing is a feature of IP, whereby individual packets can specify routes. This feature is used in several different network attacks by bypassing perimeter and internal defense mechanisms.

Configure the Cisco IOS XE router to disable IP source routing, using the command below: ISR4000(config)#no ip source-route
