openSUSE Linux 12.1: Create a new firewall.

Feature state

openSUSE Distribution
Rejected Information


My suggestion is to join all the features of
SuSEfirewall2 , with
Dynamic Firewall ,
FirewallD and
system-config-firewall of Fedora Linux,
Interactive Firewall of Mandriva Linux,
dynfw of Gentoo Linux,
ufw of Ubuntu Linux, the
Shorewall , the
Firestarter , the
Kmyfirewall , the
PF (firewall) , the
Vuurmuur , the
Firewall Builder , the
Astaro Security Gateway Software Appliance , the
Firewall Analyzer , the
Smoothwall , the
ClearOS , the
Endian Firewall , the
Cisco IOS , the
IPCop and
IPFire , after this union of features, it would create a new Firewall, more stable, secure, efficient, current, complete, modern, flexible, integrated, manageable, easy and fast to use, dynamic and interactive: SUSEfirewall3

I suggest using the name SUSEfirewall3, because then it can be used in openSUSE Linux and SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop and Server. Also, because using that name, was being accepted in part these features:

openSUSE Linux: Make it Global (Worldwide) in the World:

Change the name SuSE Linux, by its present name openSUSE Linux:

openSUSE Linux 12.1: Increased variety of packages, all packages:

My suggestion is to complement what exists, to get better: SUSEfirewall3

While we're at it, why don't we combine Fedora, Magaeia, Ubuntu, Sabayon, and Puppy linux with openSUSE? :-) Are you serious? This is a vague wish, not a specific, actionable feature request.

About half of your list are not even firewall implementations, but merely frontends. And perhaps get along with the fact that the diversity of them just exists because people could not agree on doing it exactly one way.

I agree, ExaProtect would greatly fit your problems and all your needs, hope you tried it. As far as
internet protection configuring your firewall always takes a long time for your special needs.

I have no pseudocode, I do not want to generalize.

On the Firewall, I can summarize what is necessary in certain items:

Increase defense for
Denial of Service (DoS) .

Monitor and report any changes that interfere with the security of the system, through e-mail and
SMS , it also includes the feature:
312714 Create a user interface for various configuration profiles:

1 - Automatic:
Auto-configuration 2 - Basic: easy and fast to use
3 - Advanced: more options

Add all components of the
Interactive Firewall :

  • netfilter modules to detect intrusions
  • a new netfilter target, IFWLOG
  • iptables
  • ipset
  • shorewall (default)
  • mandi, a root socket to user apps bridge, using D-Bus
  • net_applet, which receives alerts
  • drakids, a blacklist/whitelist management tool

And add all the components of the
Dynamic Firewall .
