Abstract

See full text

Systems for providing information on network firewall policy configuration facilitation include a firewall facilitation coordinator configured to receive a request to add an application not currently supported by a user's firewall policy, and to generate a time window during which a user can run the application and observe which types of packets are utilized by the application. A policy modification agent associated with the firewall is configured to communicate with the firewall facilitation coordinator. The policy modification agent is further configured to receive a firewall modification request from the firewall facilitation coordinator, to accomplish the observation of packets flowing through the firewall during the time window, and to subsequently modify the user's firewall policy such that the application is able to communicate as needed through the firewall, rather than being blocked. Other systems and methods are also provided.
