7.26 Firewalls

Cfengine is a useful tool for implementing, monitoring and maintaining firewalls. You can control what programs are supposed to be on the firewall and what programs are not supposed to be there. You can control file permissions, processes and a dozen other things which make up the configuration of a bastion host. By referencing important programs against a read only medium you can not only monitor host integrity but always be certain that you are never more than a cfengine execution away from correctness.
