Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
This paper discusses two different ways of achieving network security, IPSec as an end-to-end security service and firewalls as perimeter based security system. First an overview is made of the different security threats and their inter-relationships. Then the different security services as countermeasures to the different threats are discussed.
A thorough investigation is then performed of the two security mechanisms IPSec and firewall technology regarding security services, functionality, and design.
A comparison of the security services and functionality of IPSec and firewall is made.
Finally, this paper concludes what impact IPSec as an end-to-end security service will have on the future role of firewalls.
