Security Group Seminar, 21st November 1995
The "Firewall" - taking the (quite broad) definition of a
firewall's being any device designed (in some manner) to restrict
"soft" access to a network - has migrated from being a tool of the
paranoid systems administrator, into being a standard part of
modern network infrastructures.

- Room TP4, Computer Laboratory
- FIREWALLS AS A NETWORK SECURITY TOOL
This seminar will review why this situation has come about, what
modern firewall architectures (both basic and advanced) look like,
examine what they can/cannot accomplish, and will speculate upon
the future potential of firewalls as access-security devices.
