Session passwords and secure packets aren't a way to stop DOS, It's how
many sessions one allows at a time and how many DOS computers are used in
an attempt to breach that setting. Even if there's a handshake password
required, the target system will be working overtime in an attempt to shut
out all unwanted session requests. Brent and Geno would have a field day
with that.
