Difference between SNAT and Masquerade On NAT

MASQUERADE is most often used in the same settings as SNAT. Using the MASQUERADE target results in determining the IP dynamically instead of using the static IP as provided with SNAT. Though the computation in this process increases MASQUERADE provides correct operation in real world situations where public IPs are often assigned by service providers using DHCP and can change over time.

There have been some comments on those two being the similar in most terms except those mentioned here since they use the same nat core and hence no difference with respect to the nat helpers.
