Show 3 — Defense in Depth — Phase Alpha

Ethan, Dan and Greg are Deep Diving into the Security Topic of “Defense in Depth” and what it really means. .

We had an open discussion that really didn’t go far enough. We did cover the following:

  • Open or closed ACL’s in your firewalls and the performance hit.
  • The value of an IDS on the outside of the external firewall or the inside.
  • Using one or two firewalls.
  • The value of “knowing how to drive your firewall”
  • The spectrum of security policy.
  • Concepts and practice on building DMZ’s

We think that we will return to the topic in the future, therefore this is Phase Alpha
