Stateful firewall Stateful firewall technology was introduced by Check Point Software with the FireWall-1 product in 1994.
Tunneling protocol Users can also use tunneling to "sneak through" a firewall, using a protocol that the firewall would normally block, but "wrapped" inside a protocol that the firewall does not block, such as HTTP. If the firewall policy does not specifically exclude this kind of "wrapping", this trick can function to get around the intended firewall policy (or any set of interlocked firewall policies).
WANSecure Firewall The WANSecure firewall is a remotely monitored, managed firewall. On top of the management all services are provided and secured by WANBound. Some of the services offered on the WANSecure firewall include:
Firewall pinhole In computer networking, a firewall pinhole is a port that is not protected by a firewall to allow a particular application to gain access to a service on a host in the network protected by the firewall.
Distributed firewall This is an artifact of firewall deployment: internal traffic that is not seen by the firewall cannot be filtered; as a result, internal users can mount attacks on other users and networks without the firewall being able to intervene.
Cyberoam Cyberoam Firewall is certified by the ICSA Labs Firewall Certification. The ICSA Labs Firewall certification demands required by ICSA Labs, an independent division of Cybertrust, validating Cyberoam’s firewall capabilities in effectively protecting customers’ networks from malicious Internet threats.
Norton Personal Firewall Norton Personal Firewall, developed by Symantec, is a discontinued personal firewall with ad blocking, program control and privacy protection capabilities.
Application firewall The Application firewall located in the security preferences of Mac OS X starting with Leopard provides the functionality of this type of firewall to a limited degree via the use of code signing apps added to the firewall list. For the most part, this Application firewall only manages network connections by checking to see if incoming connections are directed toward an app in the firewall list and applies the rule (block/allow) specified for those apps.
Sentry Firewall While basic Linux familiarity is necessary to configure a basic set of files necessary to use the firewall, there exists Windows programs capable of creating the bulk of the configuration scripts based on interaction with a graphical user interface. Firewall Builder is one such example; this program also works with other firewall products unrelated to Sentry Firewall.
Sangfor Technologies Sangfor Next-Generation Firewall integrates a Web Application Firewall with a Next-Generation Firewall all in one box without sacrificing the performance.
Firewall (computing) Marcus Ranum, Wei Xu, and Peter Churchyard developed an application firewall known as Firewall Toolkit (FWTK). In June 1994, Wei Xu extended the FWTK with the kernel enhancement of IP filter and socket transparent. This was known as the first transparent application firewall, released as a commercial product of Gauntlet firewall at Trusted Information Systems. Gauntlet firewall was rated one of the number one firewalls during 1995–1998.
Personal firewall A personal firewall differs from a conventional firewall in terms of scale. A personal firewall will usually protect only the computer on which it is installed, as compared to a conventional firewall which is normally installed on a designated interface between two or more networks, such as a router or proxy server. Hence, personal firewalls allow a security policy to be defined for individual computers, whereas a conventional firewall controls the policy between the networks that it connects.
Firewall pinhole Leaving ports open in firewall configurations exposes the protected system to potentially malicious abuse. A fully closed firewall prevents applications from accessing services on the other side of the firewall. For protection, the mechanism for opening a pinhole in the firewall should implement user validation and authorization.
Stateful firewall In computing, a stateful firewall is a network firewall that tracks the operating state and characteristics of network connections traversing it. The firewall is configured to distinguish legitimate packets for different types of connections. Only packets matching a known active connection are allowed to pass the firewall.
Norton Internet Security Norton recommends disabling the Windows Firewall to avoid redundant alerts. The firewall stealthed all significant ports in "PC Magazine" testing. Attacking the firewall itself was unsuccessful, and "PC Magazine" was unable to stop its service, terminate its process, or disable the firewall using simulated mouse clicks. The firewall also passed "PC Pro"s tests, successfully stealthing all ports.
Dual-homed Other firewall architectures include the "network-layer firewall" types screening router, screened-host, and screened-subnet.
Internet censorship in Australia Proposed Australian laws on Internet censorship are sometimes referred to as the Great Firewall of Australia, Rabbit Proof Firewall (a reference to the Australian Rabbit-proof fence), Firewall Australia or Great Firewall Reef (a reference to Great Barrier Reef and the Great Firewall of China).
