Firewalls? Firewalls?? We don't need no stinkin' Firewalls!!

Firewalls are often framed as a one job tool. Furthermore, when looking to set up a secure network infrastructure, this Debian Admin says that sometimes they aren't aren't even needed!

To the contrary, Firewalls can be engineered to serve a number of purposes such as fragment reassembly for instance (as the author at TuxMachines states) and are generally only as secure as they are configured to be.

It seems that Firewalls are commonly misconceived of both being the given for network security (possibly not true) and not nearly enough on their own (the given among those who know security).


(bonus points for those who know the movie being alluded to in the title)
