Integration in SerNet's firewall concepts
In a typical sernet.DMZ setup a firewall from Palo Alto Networks is configured as the internal firewall. An external packet filter based on a Cisco firewall or OpenBSD appliance protects the whole DMZ from the internet. The internal firewall works on several levels:
Traffic on TCP level is analyzed by a packet filter but can be assigned to different users on the higher session level and therefore controlled with a role and rights management. Even secured SSL connections may be intercepted to apply content filtering that otherwise would stay blind on encrypted data.
