Linux Desktop Firewall

on

Mandriva 2006 is provided with an interactive firewall available directly the desktop.

This solution is available only for mandriva at the moment but a cvs version of the deamon (mandi) is available too.

It’s based on :

  • netfilter modules to detect intrusions
  • a new netfilter target, IFWLOG
  • iptables
  • ipset
  • shorewall (optionnal)
  • mandi, a root socket to user apps bridge, using D-Bus
  • net_applet, which receives alerts
  • drakids, a blacklist/whitelist management tool

I think this is a nice solution for end/home users. Hope it will be available for other distribution too.

You can see screenshots at the project’s home page: Interactive Firewall
