The overall performance of a firewall is crucial in enforcing and administrating security, especially when the network is under attack. The continuous growth of the Internet, coupled with the increasing sophistication of the attacks, is placing stringent demands on firewall performance. In this paper, we describe a traffic-aware optimization framework to improve the operational cost of firewalls. Based on this framework, we design a set of tools that inspect and analyze both multidimensional… CONTINUE READING
