difference between stateful inspection and packet flow
Hi Ranjeett, Stateful Inspection is a major part of the packet from through a Security Gateway, but there are some other operations there too.
More details here: Security Gateway Packet Flow and Acceleration - with Diagrams
vague question Stateful vs. Stateless FW is the answer:
A Stateful firewall is aware of the connections that pass through it. It adds and maintains information about a user's connections in a state table, referred to as a connection table. It then uses this connection table to implement the security policies for users connections. An example of the stateful firewall is PIX, ASA, Check Point.
Stateless firewalls - (Packet Filtering) Stateless firewalls, on the other hand, does not look at the state of connections but just at the packets themselves. An example of a packet filtering firewall is the Extended Access Control Lists on Cisco IOS Routers.
ps. sorry for the joke at the begining but I couldnt help it
I took the question in the Check Point context exclusively. But thanks for helping, it might be we need a wider aspect.
as my good mate (Daniel Lavi) from your PS said "simple answers are the most difficult to find"
Should that just be expressed as: Difference in packet flow when using statefull inspection ?
