Layers in R80

I would like to clarify the use of layers in R80 Management Server and SmartConsole.A layer is a set of rules, or a rule-base. R80 organizes the policy with ordered layers. For example, Gateways that have the Firewall and Application control blades enabled, will have their policies split into two ordered layers: Network and Applications. Another example is Gateways that have the IPS and Threat Emulation blades enabled, will have their policies split into two ordered layers: IPS and Threat Prevention. For Pre-R80 Gateways, this basically means the same enforcement as it always was, only in a different representation in the Security Management.Ordered layers are enforced this way: When the Gateway matches a rule in a layer, it starts to evaluate the rules in the next layer. The layers concept opens more options for policy management:Setting different view and edit permissions per layer for different administrator roles.Re-using a layer in different places: The same application control layer in different policy packages ( Sharing a layer across different policies ), or the same inline layer for different scopes.Explaining global and local policies in Multi-Domain with the same feature set of layers: A domain layer will be the set of rules that are added in each domain by the domain administrator.R80.10 Gateways and above will have the ability to utilize layers in new ways:Unifying all blades into a single policy (How to use the unified policy? )Segregating a policy into more ordered layers, not necessarily by bladesAllowing sub-policies inside a rulebase, with the use of inline layers (How do I define diffrent policies to diffrent users? )Message was edited by: Tomer Sole

Smart Console filtered rule export, including resolved object details

Hi,one of my customers is having a challenge with exporting filtered rules to CSV. This is AFAIK not possible at the moment in Check Point R8x SmartConsole - and I think it should be low hanging fruit to develop, and a feature that adds to reputation as the premium gold standard GUI in firewall management.What are your opinions to that one? Quick set of screenshots to make the problem clear:In demomode filter for a subnetuse export to csvrealize the export is containing all rules, and that there is no "export filtered rulebase" optionWhen this would be considered to be developed by R&D, it would be nice to have a possibility to export the relevant list of objects / groups as well.The usecase for this customer is to report all relvant rules (and have the details about srcs/dsts) for a tenant, while rules are spread across the rulebase of this perimeter firewall.Looking forward to your commentsBest regardsMarkus

SmartMove: Convert Cisco ASA Policy to Check Point

Check Point SmartMove tool enables you to convert 3rd party database with firewall security policy and NAT to Check Point database.At the moment, the tool handles Cisco ASA (version 8.3 and above) configuration file and converts its objects, NAT and firewall policy to a Check Point R80.10 policy. The tool is planned to support additional vendors in the future.Source is available on GitHub: SmartMove

Verify Access Control Policy and Sub-policies usage

I have an Access Control Policy which is made of the follwing:- Global Policies- Multiple Sub-policies, used for zone-to-zone purpose (we migrated from Juniper, which used zones) Unfortunately, I realized that the Verify Access Control Policy tool is not comparing rules across sub-policies. Is there a way to force the tool to verify global policies against sub-policies ?

Windows UI Scaling breaking R80.20 UI

I'm using the latest SmartConsole for R80.20 on Windows 10 and there are multiple areas where the UI breaks.I run a dual monitor setup. 4k 3840x2160 on a 42" with recommended 150% scaling and 2736x1824 with on a 13" with the recommended 200% scaling.Doing a few tests it looks like most, if not all problems are in the 150% scenario. The 200% feels ok.Reading checkmates it sounds like there shouldn't be problems with R80.10 regarding to windows scaling but with R80.20 there are problems all over the place.A few examples:Compliance blade:- Regulatory Compliance graphs are out of the screen with no scroll bars or only a hint of text is recognizable and overlaps with graphs.Cluster object:- Network ManagementNot all networks are shown. No scroll bar. You can still reach and alter these networks blind with cursor and enter keys.- GeneralOpening a dialog with a scaling of X on one monitor and moving the dialog to another screen with a different scaling keeps the initial scaling. Maybe a Windows feature.

Inline layer vs separate rules

I finally got my firewalls all updated to R80.20 so now I'm looking at taking advantage of the layer options. One thing that occurred to me and I haven't been able to find an answer so far is how to best optimize rules when taking the inline layers into account.For example, say I have a firewall management rule section that allows certain traffic to the firewall. One rule for SSH/HTTPS from managers, one for DHCP requests to the firewalls, one for SNMP from our monitoring servers, etc. Is there a reason not to make those an inline policy with the main policy just src: Any dst: Firewalls svc: Any? Would doing it as an inline layer speed up the firewall itself, or does it split it out into the separate layers when it pushes policy (the inline layers are just for management ease of use/reuse)?Thanks!Jake

Firewall allowing traffic without Access Policy

Hello, I am new here. I am having an Issue with an R80.30 Gateway that is allowing inbound traffic on 443 without an access policy in place. I think it is based on NAT, I do have a DNAT in place for 443 traffic, I thought Access policy must be matched in order to allow traffic ? The said traffic is not showing up on any logs either. Fw monitor I can see the traffic hit the WAN side not I cant see any other details after that. I am filtering based on source IP. fw monitor -m iIoO -l 56 -T -e '{accept(((src=,dport=443) or (sport=443,dst=,[9:1]=6);}'

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?
