The Copwall project presents the foundation in form of architecture, design and application prototype of the Copwall Firewall management system. The Copwall Firewall management system aims to solve the task of configuring, maintaining and monitoring network firewalls, by presenting a powerful graphical application and a centralized management solution. The Copwall application GUI will give the user access to both simple and advanced features of firewall filter configuration, along with system service configuration and management features. The Copwall management system will provide a central management solution for distributed firewalls, using encrypted channels in all network communication. The Copwall system uses the security of OpenBSD and the power of Packet Filter (PF) to provide a strong and secure solution on firewalls and management server, while allowing platform independence for the user, by implementing the user interface in the cross platform compatible Java system.
