Roll of Distributed Firewalls in Local Network forData Security

Rajendra H. Rathod and Prof. Ms.V.M. Deshmukh


Network Security is needed to prevent hacking of data and to provide authenticated data transfer. Network Security can be achieved by Firewall. Firewall is a hardware or software device designed to permit or deny network transmissions based upon a set of rules and regulation. It is frequently used to protect networks from unauthorized access. A firewall is typically placed at the edge of a system and acts as a filter for unauthorized traffic. But conventional firewalls rely on the notions of restricted topology and controlled entry points to function. Restricting the network topology, results in difficulty in filtering of certain protocols, End-to-End encryption problems etc. Sodistributed firewalls are used which allow enforcement of security policies on a network without restricting its topology on an inside or outside point of view. Distributed firewalls secure the network by protecting critical network endpoints, exactly where hackers want to penetrate. It filters traffic from both the Internet and the internal network. They provide unlimited scalability and also they overcome the single point of failure problem presented by the perimeter firewall.

This paper is a literature review paper, dealing with the general concepts such distributed firewalls, its requirements and implications and introduce, its suitability to common threats on the Internet, as well as give a short discussion on contemporary implementations. A distributed firewall gives complete security to the network.
