Designing and Using DMZ Networks to Protect Internet Servers
Naturally, you want to carefully restrict traffic from the outside world to the DMZ. But it's equally important to carefully restrict traffic from the DMZ to your internal network (to protect it in the event that a DMZ host is compromised) and from the DMZ to the outside world (to prevent a compromised DMZ host from being used to attack other networks).
It goes without saying that you'll probably want to block all traffic from the Internet to internal hosts. (You may or may not feel a need to restrict traffic from the internal network to the DMZ, depending on what type of access internal users really need to DMZ hosts and how much you trust internal users.) In any event, your firewall-security policy will be much more effective if your firewall can distinguish between legitimate and phony source-IP addresses. Otherwise, it might be possible for an external user to slip packets through the firewall by forging internal source IPs.
By default, most firewalls don't have this functionality enabled (the feature is usually called something like anti-IP-spoofing. Even if your firewall supports it, you'll probably have to configure and start it yourself. It's well worth the effort, though.

With all the industry talk about the benefits of Linux on Power and all the performance advantages offered by its open architecture, you may be considering a move in that direction. If you are thinking about analytics, big data and cloud computing, you would be right to evaluate Power. The idea of using commodity x86 hardware and replacing it every three years is an outdated cost model. It doesn’t consider the total cost of ownership, and it doesn’t consider the advantage of real processing power, high-availability and multithreading like a demon.
This ebook takes a look at some of the practical applications of the Linux on Power platform and ways you might bring all the performance power of this open architecture to bear for your organization. There are no smoke and mirrors here—just hard, cold, empirical evidence provided by independent sources. I also consider some innovative ways Linux on Power will be used in the future.Get the Guide
