Tonight on the show we will be joined by Bob Toxen of Fly-By-Day Consulting, Inc. The focus will be adaptive firewalls. May of 2001 we had as guests the folks from Cylant with their adaptive system.

Bob's company specializes in building inexpensive Linux-based Adaptive Firewalls with Intrusion Detection Systems (IDSs) and Virtual Private Networks (VPNs) for mixed-OS networks. Their Cracker Trap (TM) Adaptive Firewall detects cracker attacks and probes automatically and lock them out (hopefully) permanently and before they can do any damage.

Bob also bring to this conversation the credential as the author of Real World Linux Security, 2nd editionwhich was just published this past October.
