[SOLVED] Configuring a Firewall System
I need support with this Computer Science question so I can learn better.
Prior to beginning work on this interactive assignment, read Chapters 2, 6, and 8 in the textbook.
Almost all of us have some type of Ethernet network at home. Usually, the Internet service provider (ISP) installs a gateway to the Internet at your house, and your network connects to the gateway using a home router. The TCP/IP stack of your intranet computers are configured to use the ISP router as a gateway to the Internet. Many of us also use Wireless Ethernet (IEEE 802.11 standard) to connect to the Internet. .
For this interactive assignment, assess your current home network. (If you do not currently have a home network, you may consider your work network for this assessment.) In a separate document, create a diagram that illustrates your intranet setup and your Internet connection. Consider the potential vulnerabilities of your current network setup as well as your digital resources. Create a second diagram in your document that illustrates an ideal network, including firewall(s) and other controls that would protect your digital resources against hackers. Attach your completed diagram document to your initial post. Within the initial post, explain how the design of the network best suits your needs and typical usage. Additionally, explain how your planned firewall architecture provides better security than your current network setup.
