in line layer without cleanup

Ok, here is my understanding of inline layers and I really doubt in the mean time if this is correct. I have a number of /29 networks that are part of a /24 and all need access to some specified services. Each of these /29's has it's own specific access in-line layer with in and outbound cleanup rules. Now I added a access rule with in-line layer to allow the centralized services of which a part is based on URLs and part on specific IP's. Now my assumption was, that when you do NOT add a cleanup rule in the /24 in-line layer, the matching will continue thru the rest of the rulebase, thus hitting the specific rules for the /29. Today someone told me that traffic was allowed that should not be allowed, all I can think of is that the message on the /24 in-line layer that says: "Missing Cleanup-rule - Unmatched traffic will be accepted and not logged" So the main question here is, is this really true?

R80.20 and Database Revision

I have heard from several customers asking for a return of Database Revision Control in R80.X. I know every policy is backed up, but once and object is deleted, it can no longer be recovered with anything short of a full restore from backup since DB Revision is gone. My question is this. I'd heard that there were plans to bring it back in a future version. As it's not there in R80.20, does anyone know if there are plans to bring it back, and if so, at which future version?

Policy Changes - How to see what changes you have made

Policy Install Shows Multiple Changes.Hi All,Has anyone noticed when you go to push policy in R80 it shows multiple changes and for all policies?So say I add a host to one policy and then publish it and then go to push policy on the policy install page it shows like 50 changes. Even though all you have done is add an existing host to an existing rule.If you then click on the total changes you see a list of the changes but its for all firewalls and all policies, not just changes for the policy you just updated.It's pretty hard to see what changes you actually made.It doesn't seem there is a way to see only the changes you are pushing/have made.thanks all

Allowing custom site with external hosted images

We have a custom site that we've created an access rule for all users to be able to access. However the page only partially loads. Looking into the logs show that the images used by the website fail to load, as they are being blocked because they are hosted on an external site (* that isnt explicitly allowed.I'd like to be able to allow the site to load these pages for our users, without white listing cloudfront.netI feel like this is doable, but I'm missing something.

Properly defining the Internet within a security policy

Let's discuss!There are various methods of defining the Internet within your firewall security policy.I've showcased the five most common methods in the screen shot below.The proper firewall definition of the Internet depends on your needs!This discussion shall raise your awareness that it's required to evaluate your specific demand to avoid using * Any or All_Internet by default.Method 1: Using the default * Any definition Pro: Allows for proper Security Policy verification checks. Con: Any is not the Internet. In an ideal security world, you shouldn't use * Any in any of your firewall rules.Method 2: Using the default IP Address range: All_Internet ( Pro: While Hide-NAT on "Any" source doesn't work, using All_Internet as the source will do the job. Con: The Internet consists of various networks, public, private and other ones. In a security environment you operate all kind of corporate networks, DMZs, VPNs, Remote Users, Office Modes and many more entities using IP addresses. From a firewall security point of view the Internet definition means everything that is not internally, branch office, Site-to-Site or Remote Access VPN connected. For a firewall the Internet is everything else, public, untrusted, external. A simple IP Address range object with the name All_Internet provokes many misunderstandings. A security reviewer, like me, would be happy that * Any was replaced with an object someone hopefully took care of properly defining what the Internet for that specific firewall implementation is. Only when looking deeper into the object it gets clear that this definition is even more worse than * Any because it might supersede the automatic validation checks Check Point does. Please see the Global Properties for Non Unique IP Adresses shown below.Method 3: Using a Group with Exclusion (Any except all corp. networks, branch office networks, VPN encryption domains, office mode networks, RFC 1918 networks and so on) Pro: Easy to use and understandable for humans within normal firewall administration. Con: Groups with Exclusion are very complex for automatic firewall validation checks, hard to troubleshoot for humans, known to sometimes cause issues when used in VPN encryption domains and therefore have many limitations (sk97246, sk101506, sk107543, sk107417, ..). Also, what is * Any from a firewalls perspective? How does a firewall define * Any? Are there exclusions from * Any? For Services everyone knows that Check Point per default excludes X11 from Any. How about Networks?Method 4: Using the Application and URL Filtering object 'Internet' Pro: Only applies to traffic heading outside the corporate network - to the DMZ and external interfaces. The object distinguishes between internal and external addresses. Con: This is only the default destination for Application and URL Filtering rules so you can only use this object in the destination column of Application and URL Filtering enabled rules and layers.Method 5: Negating a group that contains all your networks (similar to Method 3 without using a Group without Exclusion) Pro: Perfect definition of the Internet for the firewall and all of its automatic verification and validation mechanisms. Simple negation of all networks that your firewall 'knows' not to be part of the public, untrusted, external Internet. Con: Harder to understand for humans, especially in security policies with advanced complexity.Appendix:Menu > Global Properties > Non Unique IP AddressesIn the above window you can see the non-unique IPv4 and IPv6 address ranges.Security Management considers addresses that are routable on the Internet as unique, and private, non-routable addresses as being non-unique (duplicated). It is possible to add address ranges to the default list. There is normally no need to change the default addresses.This list is used by SmartDashboard to perform automatic validity checks on addresses.IPv4 AddressesRFC 1918 documents private address spaces which may be used on internal networks that will not have hosts directly connected to the Internet. The Internet assigned Numbers authority (IANA) has set aside the following three blocks of IP addresses for internal (private) network use:Class A network numbers:– B network numbers:– C network numbers:– an intranet that uses private addresses, a Check Point Security Gateway NAT gateway is put in place to connect the intranet to the Internet and translate the private addresses, to routable addresses. The default list of non-unique addresses are the three ranges specified in RFC 1918.IPv6 AddressesThere are so many IPv6 public addresses that is not usually necessary to assign private IPv6 addresses for an internal network. There is a "Unique Unicast" IP range of fc00::/7 that can be used for private IPv6 addresses as specified in RFC4193.

Security rule for domain computer

Hi team,I'm running a cluster of 2 5400 SG and a SmartConsole, in R80.10, with Identity Awarness and AD query for a MS Active Directory Domain.I've created some Access Roles that match our AD groups.But i'm confused with generic AD groups, like Domain Users and Domain Computers dynamic groups. And the Access role options : Any user/All identified users or Any machine/All identified machines.For some reasons, some trafic have no source user name, so i'd like to set up security policies with the Access Role "Domain Computers", and no source user. Is there a way to do so ?Thanks for any help !

CPT - Check Point Packet Trace Utility ?

Will Check Point release a management plugin that offers a similar functionality to Cisco's ASDM packet tracer anytime soon? I'm thinking about coding it on my own for quite some time. Shall I start or wait for Check Point?
