I had a quick question. I'm enrolled in an Ethical Hacking course this summer and it started already. Were reading a book called 'Hands-On Ethical Hacking & Network Defense' (I may possibly do a review on it...maybe not though cause it seems a little outdated). In chapter 2 it gives us a brief introduction to TCP / IP. I had a quick question, the author is stating the SYN flag stands for Synthesis. Correct me if I'm wrong but I thought the SYN stood for Synchronize? Is synthesis an alternate name use here or did the author have a typo?
