Research has shown that majority of network penetration attacks is likely because of poor implementation of firewalls; which are actually meant to protect the network at perimeter. The Firewall Rulebase Analysis Tool analyses the inapt firewall rules and helps you defend against penetration attacks. The aim of this project is to highlight that the offline rulebase analysis has more to offer and should be considered in cost-cutting measures and by SMEs. This tool does an intensive analysis on each rule against a pre-defined checklist, and generates a report mentioning necessary actions required.
