Masters Theses

Abstract

"This thesis proposes a distributed approach to securing computer networks by delegating the role of a conventional firewall to a collection of nodes and controllers placed throughout the networks they are intended toprotect from attack. This distributed firewall system is a specific application of a generalized distriubted system framework that is also proposed in this thesis. The design and implementation of both the generalized framework and the application of the framework in creating a distributed firewall system for use on Ethernet-based networks that rely on the Internet Protocol are discussed. Conclusions based upon the preliminary implementation of the proposed systems are given along with future directions"--Abstract, pageiii.
