Next Generation Firewall and Other Apps

Netronome is building onto their flow-processing platform by layering software over the top. They just announced several “application kits”, including intrusion detection/prevention, SSL, IPsec, and deep packet inspection, but headlining the whole thing with a next-generation firewall  application.

They explained a bit of the firewall scene first by pointing out that the firewalls we think of that protect our computers or homes or businesses are a small part of the market. Those are perimeter firewalls, and their primary function is to block unwanted traffic.

But within data centers, the firewall activity is distributed, with each rack having a so-called “core firewall.” These end up doing much more than blocking, including routing and intrusion prevention.

The “next generation” aspect builds on the simplistic model that has been used for blocking to date: ports and sockets. Going forward, users and application identity can also be targeted, allowing more selectivity over how traffic gets filtered.

You can find more about all of their application kits in their release.

Series Five Product Introduction

Sponsored by Mouser Electronics and Amphenol Aerospace

Size and weight are critical design considerations when it comes to military and aerospace applications. One way to minimize weight and size in these kinds of designs is to take a closer look at your choice of connectors. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Anthony Annunziata from Amphenol Aerospace about the series five next generation connectors from Amphenol Aerospace. They investigate the size and weight advantages that these connectors bring to military and aerospace applications and how you can get started using the series five in your next design.
