Athena's Free Firewall Browser

athenasec writes "Firewall Browser is a free configuration analyzer (download here), released by Athena Security, which works on Cisco, Check Point, and Netscreen firewalls for searching rulebases based on address or service ranges — the way change requests are actually made. The tool is available as a free download with no limitations, user license restrictions, or registration hurdles. Users can slice and dice any firewall-related question about the network, service objects, and security rules for a multi-vendor environment from a single flexible interface. There is also this how-to guide for applying the tool to day-to-day operational tasks."

1-Week old news.

That's too old for me.

One week is too old? (-1, Troll)

I see a basement dwelling wannabe rapist.

Wannabe for lack of a penis.

Gee whiz, thanks (2, Interesting)

Gee whiz, thank you, athenasec [slashdot.org] , for taking time out of your doubtless busy day to sign up for the sole purpose of hocking your wares on /.. Shit, at least Fleshlight [slashdot.org] tried submitting something we could actually use.

At least they bothered to write a guide to explain what the fuck I'm supposed to do with their software. I was in charge of a Linux dell server once. I was told to install Dell's OpenManage Server Administrator so I could administer the server. I installed it, it ran a Java instance that took up half a gig of ram, and not once did I ever figure out what the fuck it even did. I ended up pulling out the little SNMP monitor for the raid array and threw the rest away.

PDF much? (1)

socsoc (1116769) | more than 4 years ago | (#31546622)

For a product that lists Microsoft Internet Explorer 6.0 SP1 (or later) or Firefox 2.0 (or later) or PDF reader for reading HTML/PDF reports in the system requirements, there's a helluva lot of PDFs on that site.

A security company flogging wares via one of the most exploitable [slashdot.org] formats...

It still doesn't beat the irony of people preventing IP theft by locking their PDFs with a cracked copy of Acrobat.

Re:PDF much? (1)

aztektum (170569) | more than 4 years ago | (#31547078)

Uh, that's Adobe Acrobat that has the sec issues. NOT PDF as a format.

Re:PDF much? (1)

socsoc (1116769) | more than 4 years ago | (#31560420)

Oh, right, cause most of the people in the world use one of the other viewers that crash all the time.

Excel spreadsheet (2, Insightful)

Gothmolly (148874) | more than 4 years ago | (#31546642)

You mean your network guys don't just have 1 giant, multi-tabbed Excel file?

Re:Excel spreadsheet (2, Insightful)

deniable (76198) | more than 4 years ago | (#31546658)

Nah, we upgraded to Access. We've got VBA macros to alter the firewall rules.

I think I'm about to hurl.

Re:Excel spreadsheet (1)

Dr. Evil (3501) | more than 4 years ago | (#31546818)

Quit now. It can only get worse.

Soon they'll have it automatically generating Visio diagrams.

Re:Excel spreadsheet (2, Informative)

deniable (76198) | more than 4 years ago | (#31546922)

Bah, real managers generate rules from the Visio diagrams.

Oh, man, this would have been funny, if it wasn't so true...

I was imagining it'd go more like this:

StoneGate FTW ! (0)

Anonymous Coward | more than 4 years ago | (#31546892)

... and you need 3rd party tool for this?
- shame on you Cisco, CP and NetScreen

- all this and then some included, no 3rd party needed ...

Paid for? (3, Insightful)

pipatron (966506) | more than 4 years ago | (#31548248)

So are these "articles" actually bought and paid for, or do they just manage to sneak them in to the news flow now and then through the firehose? If they are paid for, I think it would be nice with some sort of warning, maybe a small dollar-sign icon or similar, indicating that it's an ad.

Re:Paid for? (1)

egcagrac0 (1410377) | more than 4 years ago | (#31550038)

The "sponsored article" indicator should only appear to subscribers.
