Type: KDE Security

More Info:

 Firewall Builder 3.0 introduces support for IPv6
for iptables and PF firewalls and Cisco IOS
extended access lists. Now you can generate both
IPv4 and IPv6 policies for firewalls and access
lists for routers using the same GUI and the same
database of objects that represent network
addresses and services. In this version, firewall
object can have any number of policy and NAT rule
sets which can be used for branching rules or to
generate user-defined chains (iptables) or anchors
(pf) that can be used by external scripts. In
addition to that, the GUI has been improved with
addition of the ability to group rules in
policies, control size of icons and fonts. 

 Notable new features in this release: built-in
installer uses scp (pscp.exe on Windows) to copy
files to the firewall, this makes it work much
faster; optional data file compression; support
for pure mangle table rule sets for iptables;
significant improvement in the speed of the
shadowing detection for all compilers (up to 5
times on large linear policies); numerous bug
fixes and improvements in the GUI and policy
