Summarises the firewall protocols, Computer Network Security

Your rules should ensure that Internet access will be restricted to the following:

Only the following services will be permitted as OUTBOUND traffic (to the Internet from the DMZ or intranet):

  • HTTPS and HTTP (from the intranet). Note: it is assumed that external Web access provides the ability to connect to the local Secure Web Server - no additional firewall rules are required.
  • SMTP (from the Mail Server)

Only the following services will be permitted as INBOUND traffic (to the DMZfrom the Internet):

  • HTTPS (to the Secure Web Server)
  • SMTP (to the Mail Server)

Access between the Intranet and the DMZ will be restricted to the following.
Only the following services will be permitted as OUTBOUND traffic (to the DMZ from the intranet):

  • POP3 (from the intranet to the Mail Server)
  • SSH (from the system administrators' subnet (10.2.5.0) to all DMZ servers)

Only the following services will be permitted as INBOUND traffic (from the DMZ to the intranet) traffic:

  • Oracle (from the Secure Web Server)

The firewall is not to be accessible remotely on any interface - i.e. it should not accept connections on any of its IP addresses EXCEPT on its VPN port on the external interface.

Submission Requirements:

You are required to develop two sets of rules for the firewall.  One will process traffic travelling between the Internet to the DMZ and Intranet. The other will process traffic travelling between the Intranet and the DMZ.  You need to also explain what each rule does.The Following summarises the protocols and port numbers you may need to use:
