Anti spoofing

I'm not sure about anti spoofing. Do we need both of these methods or one of them is enough ?

Technique 1
===========
# enable kernel anti-spoofing
for f in /proc/sys/net/ipv4/conf/*/rp_filter; do
     echo 1 > $f
done

Technique 2
===========
# Use iptables to block faked IPs
iptables -A INPUT -j drop-reserved -i $EXTIF -s 127.0.0.0/8
iptables -A INPUT -j drop-reserved -i $EXTIF -s 1.0.0.0/8
iptables -A INPUT -j drop-reserved -i $EXTIF -s 23.0.0.0/8
iptables -A INPUT -j drop-reserved -i $EXTIF -s 31.0.0.0/8
# ... and some more list

YES or NO answer is accepted,
but more explanation or links will be highly appreciated.

Thanks

Use both. Although they have same effects in commen there
are diferences.
1. Drops packets when they would't be routed at the aprticular interface. This blocks packets with a srcaddr from inside coming from an outside interface and vice versa.
This also disables spoofer from the inside attacking outside hosts (!)
2. Drops only packets only from the outside. But it can even drop packets which would be valid for 1 because of the known fact that some Networks are unasigned.

Hope tht helps,

Thanks, but one more question.
Is the first technique ensure that Internal IP (10.x.x.x, 172.16-31.x.x, 192.x.x.x) will not leak to external network in case I accidentally turn on forwarding and forgot to masquarade ?
