In the computing domain, a firewall is considered as a network security system, which on the basis of predetermined security rules, controls the incoming as well as outgoing network traffic. A firewall generally acts as a barrier between the internal network, which is secure and the external network like the internet, which is assumed to be not secure.
In general terms, there are two types of firewalls:
1) Network Firewalls
2) Host based Firewalls
Host based Firewalls are installed on the node or a specific desktop computer, for its protection and is generally used in conjunction with a network firewall. The network firewalls are installed at the perimeter of the network, which needs the protection.
