The SINUS Firewall is a TCP/IP packet filter for Linux
The SINUS Firewall is a TCP/IP packet filter for Linux. Some of its features are stateful inspection of TCP communications, text-based configuration, graphical management interface for configuration of several firewalls, dynamic rules, prevention of packet and address spoofing, extensive logging, alerting, and counter intelligence.
The SINUS firewall is a free and easy way to protect your network from the daily threats of the Internet. It does not guarantee perfect security, however it comes with a wealth of features, including:
Filtering of all header fields in the IP, TCP, UDP, ICMP, IGMP packets.
Intelligent RIP and FTP support.
Easy to understand, text-based configuration.
Graphical management interface for configuration of several firewalls.
Dynamic rules, including counters and time-outs.
Extensive logging, alerting, and counter intelligence.
Prevention of packet and address spoofing - GNU GPL license.
To install the software, you need a Linux 2.0.x kernel based system. We suggest you install a bare-bone system without X or any of the other nifty features which tend to have security holes. You should not install user accounts on the firewall system. Log-ins other than from the console should be forbidden (if you absolutely have to log in remotely, we strongly suggest you install a copy of ssh).
Although the software has been subject to thorough testing, and has been continuously running without crashes for over 12 months, we are confident someone will eventually unconver A BUG in the software. Therefore, it is version "0.1".
Please do not use this software as the sole means to protect your top secret data. This software is intended for:
* People who want to study firewalls
* People who don't trust their current firewall
* People who currently don't have any protection at all (even if there are serious bugs, it cannot get worse, can it?)
