I'm looking to build a system that will be a dedicated firewall machine.
I would like this installation to be secure from the ground up and was
hoping that someone could recommend a customized kernel package
built specifically for firewalling. The reason I'm asking is because just
recently I tried using the ulog feature only to find that it is not supported
by my kernel. So I figured if I'm going to build a new kernel, what other
enhancements can I make?
I don't know much about kernel patches either so excuse me if this is a
dumb question: Are there any patches that would give me additional
functionality related to firewalling?
Thank you all,
