This is a step by step guide on how to install Checkpoint Firewall NGX on a secureplatform device. This article covers the basic installation part of the Firewall of the Firewall including the Enforcement Module and the Smart Center. A standalone installation is covered in this article, which means that enforcement module and the smartcenter are on the same machine.
VRRP means Virtual router redudancy protocol. I am telling you in very general language not in too technical.
Assume that you have a two firewall in HA mode .

Ever since I wrote about the 34,000 MySpace passwords I analyzed, people have been asking how to choose secure passwords.
My piece aside, there's been a lot written on this topic over the years -- both serious and humorous -- but most of it seems to be based on anecdotal suggestions rather than actual analytic evidence. What follows is some serious advice.
I’m often asked: what’s the most common type of hacker and attack? Over time I’ve discovered that the general public holds a somewhat romantic image of hackers. One mental picture involves an emaciated young man in a poverty-stricken corner of the world. Greasy-haired and red-eyed, he types late into the night on an old TRS-80 workstation, trying desperately to get your American Express account number for nefarious purposes.
Another favorite image is of a cherub-faced pre-teen with extreme computer skills and little knowledge of law and order. Thanks to too much hardware and too little parental supervision, she creates a new virus that brings down every business on the Eastern seaboard.
IDS is an acronym for Intrusion Detection System. An intrusion detection system detects intruders; that is, unexpected, unwanted or unauthorized people or programs on my computer network.
Why do I need IDS? A network firewall will keep the bad guys off my network, right? And my anti-virus will recognize and get rid of any virus I might catch, right? And my password-protected access control will stop the office cleaner trawling through my network after I've gone home, right? So that's it - I'm fully protected, right?
For years, system administrators and savvy users have needed to create long passwords to thwart password guessing attacks. However, those passwords are complicated and hard to remember. Is there a way to create strong, easy to remember passwords that are impervious to most attacks? Yes, thanks to something I call the compound password. It’s very simple, but also incredibly powerful.
After installing an expensive alarm system in his apartment and then getting robbed, Jerry Seinfeld learned a valuable lesson: no matter how good the security system, if it isn't used correctly, it is completely ineffective. That lesson holds just as true when it comes to everyday computer users and their firewalls.
