kamikaze packet n.
The `official' jargon for what is
more commonly called a Christmas tree packet. RFC-1025,
"TCP and IP Bake Off" says:
10 points for correctly being able to process a "Kamikaze"
packet (AKA nastygram, christmas tree packet, lamp test
segment, et al.). That is, correctly handle a segment with the
maximum combination of features at once (e.g., a SYN URG PUSH
FIN segment with options and data).
See also Chernobyl packet.
