Firewall Modularization and Authentication in an Effnet Firewall

Abstract [en]

The objective of this paper is to replace one part of the current firewall in the Effnet firewall with a new and optimized solution. The old firewall was written as a monolithic part, and as such, it suffered from many inherited problems. The replacement implements all basic firewall functionality, with focus on maintainability, extendability, and usability. This paper also discusses one solution to this problem by designing and implementing a completely new firewall. The future of electronic commerce on the Internet requires new authentication schemes to provide convenient and safe billing systems. Since performance is a key issue, it would be beneficial to integrate the authentication tightly into the firewall. By combining features from both worlds, it was possible to implement a highly efficient solution.
