Title : NuFW, the authenticating Firewall

Description : "After a short introduction on IP firewall technology, this lecture will describe the specificities of Netfilter, the Linux packet filtering framework. We will then describe the problem of identity based filtering and come to the solution brought by NuFW. A description of NuFW algorithm will allow you to discover NuFW internals and some interesting side effects (SSO, QoS). Last, we will present tools coming with NuFW, NuFace rules manager and NuLog for logs analysis. By this way, we will see how a strict authenticating filtering solution can improve the network admin life."
