Why do I need a firewall? 

  • Peer pressure.

  • One firewall is simpler to administer than many hosts.

  • It’s easier to be security conscientious with a firewall.

 

What is a firewall?

  • As many machines as it takes to:

  • be the sole connection between inside and outside.

  • test all traffic against consistent rules.

  • pass traffic that meets those rules.

  • contain the effects of a compromised system.

 

What are the risks?

Theft or disclosure of internal data
Unauthorized access to internal hosts
Interception or alteration of data
Vandalism & denial of service
Wasted employee time
Bad publicity, public embarassment, and law suits

What needs to be secured?

  • Crown jewels: patent work, source code, market analysis; information assets

  • Any way into your network

  • Any way out of your network

  • Information about your network
