Standard ACLs filter source address only
Extended ACLs filter destination, ports, etc.
Dynamic ACLs Also known as lock and key ACL. Lock-and-key access allows you to set up dynamic access lists that grant access per user to a specific source/destination host through a user authentication process.
Time-based ACLs activate at specific times
Reflexive ACLs Reflexive access lists provide the ability to filter network traffic at a router, based on IP upper-layer protocol "session" information.
What are firewalls? Software or hardware set up in such a fashion so as to allow or prevent network communication over various ports or protocols.
What is an IDS An Intrusion Detection System. It can log malicious packets, but cannot take immediate action.
What is an IPS An Intrusion Protection system. It can identify malicious packets and can take immediate action
What is a True Positive It is when your firewall blocks and logs a malicious event as such. It worked as intended.
What is a False Positive It is when your firewall logs an even as potentially harmful and blocks it, even though it is not. It is a waste of resources
What is a True Negative It's when your firewall logs an actual harmless event as harmless and allows it. Nothing to see here
What is a False negative Worst case scenario, it's when your firewall logs something as safe and allows it, but it is really malicious.
What is a Honeypot a decoy system (IPS) Lures and traps hackers Can distract and confuse attackers Can log attacks in detail Can collect data on attackers
