Students will configure a network firewall using the VyOS router appliance, which mimics physical router hardware. The exercise will include both ingress and egress filtering, stateful packet inspection, and best practices. Students will set up a partitioned network and a DMZ area to isolate specific enterprise services, such as an e-mail server. Evaluation will include network probes from both inside and outside the firewall to ensure proper rules are configured.


Basic network routing concepts (firewalls, subnets, etc.) as well as basic networking concepts (TCP/IP, DNS, etc.).  Students must also be comfortable working in command-line environments.
