Watch the Untangle NG Firewall 10 Community Webinar
See Untangle founder and VP, Products Dirk Morris discuss the release of Untangle’s NG Firewall v10. Highlights include an overview of the newly refactored networking architecture, improvements to the platform, the new HTTPS Inspector app, IP v6 support and VLAN tagging.
Check out this in-depth overview including a question-and-answer session with the Untangle team.
More and more websites and popular apps require users to connect via HTTPS (Hypertext Transfer Protocol Secure), the protocol for secure communications on the Internet. This encrypted traffic presents a challenge to filtering devices that inspect traffic and apply rules based on network usage policy.
HTTPS Inspector allows for full decryption of HTTPS so that applications like Web Filter, Application Control and Virus Blocker can scan the traffic and apply their rules to it. This enables organizations to ensure that the same level of control that Untangle exerted on non-encrypted HTTP traffic can also be in place with encrypted HTTPS traffic.
Untangle’s next-generation networking layer features a streamlined user interface fronting an optimized architecture with a host of new features. Notable amongst these are enhanced support for IPv6 and 802.1q VLAN tagging.
Network interfaces can now be configured with IPv6 addresses. Wide Area Networks (WANs) can be configured statically or with stateless address autoconfiguration (SLAAC). Non-WAN addresses are configured statically. Router advertisement is allowed on non-WANs.
NG Firewall v10 also supports virtual local area networks via 802.1q tagging, improving VLAN support. These 802.1q tagged interfaces are custom “alias interfaces” that appear just like physical interfaces but only handle traffic with the appropriate 802.1q tag. Any packets sent on this alias also get the appropriate 802.1q tag.
