Firewalls protect a trusted network from an untrusted network by filtering traffic according to a specified security policy. A diverse set of firewalls is being used today. As it is infeasible to examine and test each firewall for all possible potential problems, a taxonomy is needed to understand firewall vulnerabilities in the context of firewall operations. This paper describes a novel methodology for analyzing vulnerabilities in Internet firewalls. A firewall vulnerability is defined as an… CONTINUE READING
