Hacking a firewall
I have tendered for a few Internet/Intranet projects where I will be using
Debian with Apache / sendmail / inn / etc to provide the necessary services.
I have no problems with this, but I will also need to install a firewall,
typical configuration (MZ, DMZ, World). I would like to use Debian here as
well to keep everything on the same platform (do not read same host), but I
come up against a distinct lack of knowledge, from a sales as well as a
technical point of view:
1) Comparison of Debian Vs Firewall-1
My major competition here is Firewall-1. Anyone know of any comparison of
features / robustness / weaknesses?
Is this available on Debian? Can I get the TCP/IP stack to encrypt / decrypt
automatically? If so what encryption methods are available?
I am no hacker, and I need to become one to test my installations. Anyone
know of resources (official or clandestine) that could help me in this
respect. This actually could become quite a little niche market as I am sure
that down here very few people really have the knowledge to test / debug
I know that this last request is a very sensitive issue indeed. If any
further documentation is required to insure the legitimacy of my request
then please feel free to e-mail me.
