Zorp Proxy Firewall Suite 3.9.2
September 9, 2011 in Firewalls
Zorp is a proxy firewall suite and as such its core architecture is built around today’s security demands: it uses application level proxies, it is modular and component based, it uses a script language to describe policy decisions, it makes it possible to monitor encrypted traffic, it let’s you override client actions, it let’s you protect your servers with its built in IDS capabilities… The list is endless. It gives you all the power you need to implement your local security policy.
Using script language as configuration and decision language(Python)
Able to analyze subprotocols (for example HTTP in SSL)
Can add/remove packet filter rules on-demand
You can write your own proxy modules in Python if a native version is not available
With program stacking it is now possible to make decisions about the traffic based on the results returned by the external program. That way, Zorp GPL can block traffic that an antivirus or spam-filter identifies as virus or spam.
