Of course, they can control who connects to what, but they cannot prevent information leakage if someone places classified documents on your company’s web server or copies the latest sales figures to a disk and sells it to your competition. Having said that, firewalls can log traffic passing in and out of them, which makes it easy to find out just how that secret memo found its way to the competition, or which host was compromised by the attacker. An even more sophisticated packet filter could look at the payload of each packet (such solutions are already available) and silently inform appropriate law enforcement authorities when it detects certain keywords indicating that classified documents are being sent outside the company.

8 Communicating with Your Computer During Installation There are two ways to communicate with your computer during installation; you can use a keyboard and a monitor connected directly to the computer or you can use a text terminal connected to the computer’s serial port. If the machine you will be installing OpenBSD on has a DIN or PS/2 keyboard connector and a VGA or an SVGA video card, then all you need to see what is happening during installation is a standard VGA or SVGA monitor and a matching keyboard.

The filtering bridge and NAT configurations also have their place in this kind of design. Although the DMZ design is slightly more complex, it is a bad idea to save money by placing publicly accessible servers in the screened LAN and configuring the packet firewall to let inbound traffic in. When one host becomes compromised, all other hosts on that LAN are also at risk. When someone breaks into an HTTP web server running in the DMZ LAN segment, it will only pose some danger to the bastion hosts in the DMZ, but not to the hosts in the screened LAN.
