The Network Layer & Anti-Virus


Recommended Posts

I'm trying to clarify in what ways anti-virus works on the network layer of the tcp/ip stack. Search engines didn't turn up too much info. How does AV work on layer 3?  

Is it just connection management? Does AV check ip blacklists?

Is it primarily the presentation and application layer, including dns? 

Is there any diagram with the tcp/ip stack next to AV protections?

Eset doesn't directly interface with the Network stack layers. Rather it uses and interfaces with the network stack via the Windows Filtering Platform: https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-hardware/drivers/network/windows-filtering-platform-architecture-overview .
