GUI and policy compilers for various firewall platforms

This is a candidate for deletion: Homepage broken. Sourceforge notes state developers have stopped development. There is current activity on sourceforge, but last maintainer activity in 2015. Poppy-one (talk) 13:18, 30 July 2018 (EDT)

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.
