Hi ..


Today I was checking the term Kernel Module and it is defined as

" Kernel modules are pieces of code that can be loaded and unloaded into the kernel upon demand. They extend the functionality of the kernel without the need to reboot the system."


So considering this can we say that checkpoint firewall kernel is Kernel Module loaded to Redhat Linux  Kernel  as base ?

Also when we see the term checkpoint kernel or checkpoint firewall module, Inspect Module, Inspection engine ... these are interchangeable, right ?


Hope you are getting my query ..
