Your iptables policy is the main way to 1) block attempts to connect to
ports that you don't want people to see, and 2) log traffic that isn't
accepted. With this stance properly implemented, psad can detect scans, and
iptables block traffic that you don't want to allow. A changing IP
shouldn't matter in this regard, unless your iptables policy is making
assumptions about which IP addresses or networks. Sometimes this is
important too, but it depends on how you want your policy to filter traffic.

There is a sample script to set up an iptables policy in a manner
compatible with psad here:
