Automated Firewall Analytics

Design, Configuration and Optimization

by

This book provides a comprehensive and in-depth study of automated firewall policy analysis for designing, configuring and managing distributed firewalls in large-scale enterpriser networks. It presents methodologies, techniques and tools for researchers as well as professionals to understand the challenges and improve the state-of-the-art of managing firewalls systematically in both research and application domains. Chapters explore set-theory, managing firewall configuration globally and consistently, access control list with encryption, and authentication such as IPSec policies. The author also reveals a high-level service-oriented firewall configuration language (called FLIP) and a methodology and framework for designing optimal distributed firewall architecture. The chapters illustrate the concepts, algorithms, implementations and case studies for each technique. Automated Firewall Analytics: Design, Configuration and Optimization is appropriate for researchers and professionals working with firewalls. Advanced-level students in computer science will find this material suitable as a secondary textbook or reference.
