    When you hardening security of an OS, you disabling any unessacery service/daemon, and try to not have any services listening to insecure networks.

    Im not sure if the mdns (Bonjour) demon is open source, and even if i wouldnt use it in public networks. I think its running with very limited rights but dont forget:

    Human make errors, and software is made by humans :D
    (sry i dont have time to read the whole pdf atm, hope i understanded it right :eek: )

    Yes, Bonjour is opensource. It is TCP/IP with automatic discovery.

    No reply for Daniel Eran, which is disappointing to say the least.
