Hey everyone, time for your weekly update on the segments we feature on Hak5.

This week I took a look at FWBuilder. An absolutely great tool for managing firewall policies in a slew of different devices.
Here’s a little blurb from the official website.

“Firewall Builder is a GUI firewall configuration and management tool that supports iptables (netfilter), ipfilter, pf, ipfw, Cisco PIX (FWSM, ASA) and Cisco routers extended access lists. Firewall Builder uses object-oriented approach, it helps administrator maintain a database of network objects and allows policy editing using simple drag-and-drop operations.”

To be honest with you, FW builder is quite a bit more powerful than some of the other firewall management system’s I’ve used in the past, and will be following the progress of this system and have already made a request to include Juniper firewall policy support.
