Firewall Builder 2
GUI and policy compilers for various firewall platforms
Firewall Builder consists of a GUI and set of policy compilers for various firewall platforms. It lets users maintain a database of objects and allows policy editing using drag-and-drop. This provides a consistent abstract model and the same GUI for different firewall platforms. Firewall Builder provides XML DTD and C++ API library that support abstraction of network objects and generalized firewall policies. Firewall Builder currently supports iptables, ipfilter, ipfw, and OpenBSD pf.
