I would like to formally request end-user submission of rulesets to the
Security Document Initiative's Firewall Rule Subset ---- see the following
resource for more information http://www.buddhalinux.com.
The Security Document Initiative is an implementation of the domain of applied
cryptography as it relates to XML Markup Language and the creation of a
security infrastructure to protect information systems and resources.
This project is charged with developing a XML Document Type Definition
document model that Netfilter rulesets can be validated against. Any document
instance of the "Firewall Rule Subset" must be well-formed and comply with
the structured XML Markup Language. This language is being designed to
provide all VALID rule entries that are available under the netfilter
This is where you the end-user come into play. Obviously, it would take me an
untold number of days/weeks/months/years to construct a comprehensive and
stable compilation of valid rules. The compilation of the rules and rulesets
are a key step in this development process. Without, all representative rules
and rulesets; a correct and valid netfilter rule will be deemed invalid under
an improperly constructed document model. Thus, negating the purpose and
intent of the SDI Firewall Rule Subset project.
All submissions are held in complete confidentiality. You may choose to alter
your rules and/or rulesets accordingly to obfuscate and mask the original
address schemes. However, a confidentiality agreement will be made available
to interested parties. Due care and diligence will be made to ensure end-user
privacy. All submissions will be stored in encrypted form only on a
Digitally signed and/or encrypted submissions are recommended.
I would like to thank the Netfilter community in advance for their
contributions to this project.
