[Shorewall-users] some "feature questions"

I recently got a book about linux firewalls (for ipchains), and in the 
examples they activate/dissable some funktions in /proc/sys/net/ipv4.

E.g. reject ICMP-Redirects, protection against bogus IPs, activate 
TCP-SYN-Cookies, reject source routed packets. Furthermore they reject 
fragmented packets.

Are there any comparable mechanisms in shorewall? Or do I have to 
activate those protections by hand / systemstart?
