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
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:
I deeply value the diversity of MySQL developers, users, community and my blog readers. I cannot agree the suffering, oppression, and systemic racism the Black community faces every day. Black lives matter.
