I need a help.! i am assigned with the task to develop a web portal which will be provided to my team members.
That portal should contain features to add-host , delete-host, make network groups, Allow/deny traffic (in this case ,user-based policies) to a specific website, send only user traffic log (not system logs) on portal.. etc and a little more functionality. However i m not supposed to provide all the firewall details and functionality (such as adding/deleting subnet) to my team members.
From my research i found out that it can be done using RESTful APIs via browser.
Please suggest me how can i get started ?
A) Programming language to put in use ?
B) IDEs and Frameworks ??
C) How to use Firewall APIs ?
D) libraries of programming language?
Also, for the development purpose initially i will be using Checkpoint firewall in Vmware (virtrual environment) .
