Linux firewall survey: Open Source product roundup

Author: JT Smith

Linux World has the first in a series about Linux firewalls: "Security has always been a critical issue for
computer networking, and firewalls are an
essential ingredient for network security. In this
series, I will show you how Linux offers you
freedom of choice in this area. There are many
firewall solutions for Linux. Most are open source applications, but some excellent commercial
products have been ported to Linux. I'll also show you how the Linux kernel can be used to build a
highly integrated hardware firewall."
