Types of Firewalls

I've posted many articles regarding the topic of firewalls. My last article on firewalls was about uninstalling the firewalls, antiviruses which are corrupted . 

So, coming to the topic, There are 3 types of firewalls basically.

1. Network-Level Firewalls
2. Circuit-Level Firewalls
3. Application-Level Firewalls

1. Network-Level Firewalls : The objective of firewall is to examine sachet headers and clean traffic based on the IP address of the starting place and the target. Some of these primitive safety applications could also sort out packets based on protocols. Network-Level Firewalls are very fast and upcoming technologies you will find them built in network appliances specially routers. Firewall has no aware of any language such as HTML, XML therefore Firewall is capable of decoding SSL encrypted packets to inspect their data or text.

2. Circuit-Level Firewalls  : Circuit-Level Firewalls applications represent the technology of next to first generation .Firewall technology supervise TCP handshaking among packets to confirm a session is genuine. Firewall traffic is clean based on particular session rules and may be controlled to acknowledged computers only. Circuit-level firewalls conceal the network itself from the external, which is helpful for contradicting access to impostors.
 Disadvantage : Circuit-Level Firewalls don't clean entity packets

3. Application-Level Firewalls : These are also called proxies have been appearing more intensely into the application data going away their filters. By considering the perspective of user requirements and appliance responses, Application-Level Firewalls Attempt to implement exact application conduct, block malevolent action and help business companies make sure the security of responsive information and systems. Application-level filtering also used to protect your system against spam and viruses. It is also capable to block may include protection against spam and viruses as well, and be able to block unwanted Web sites.
