Sample text

All the interfaces in a softswitch share one IP address and become a single entry on the interface list. This method can be useful to aggregate different interfaces that are on the same subnet without creating a firewall policy. A good example for this would be combining a wired and a wireless interface so that clients on the wireless interface can see devices on the wired network. A softswitch is configured using the interface menu and selecting Type as Software Switch. The base configuration can be seen in the following screenshot: Talking about logical interfaces like the softswitch, it is also important to introduce the Loopback Interface.

Note In the zone configuration, we can select the Block intra-zone traffic option to prohibit the different interfaces in the same zone to talk to each other. In this scenario, if we need to enable interfaces in the same zone to talk to each other, we will have to create an explicit "allow" rule using the same source and destination zone. Firewall objects A FortiGate unit allows us to define firewall objects. The objects are reusable and we have the capability to combine them, and to configure policies employing the same object more than once.

Chapter 2, Filters, Policies, and Endpoint Security, explains UTM as the main topic of this chapter, as UTM includes a large part of the services we use on a FortiGate unit. The chapter will talk about security profiles, web filters, antivirus, anti-spam, and endpoint security. Chapter 3, VPNs and Tunnelling, is dedicated to explaining the available kind of VPNs in a FortiGate unit, SSL, and IPSEC. VPNs enable to use inexpensive connections to create a secure channel over insecure networks. Chapter 4, High Availability, explores the different solutions for high availability (HA) and load balancing available for FortiGate units.
