University of Indonesia is one of the largest state owned University in Indonesia with more than 40.000 students. As one of the university which support Free/Open Source movements (especially providing F/OSS content mirror), we also adopt F/OSS in our infrastructure development. Most of our own information systems are build using F/OSS stack by our in house developer team. In 2012, we were starting to experiment with next generation firewall to support our staff and students internet access. Current firewall cannot longer support dynamic nature of nowadays internet apps because its only filter based on port, ip addresses and communication protocol state. Meanwhile on today internet apps, we can access variety of apps using just only HTTP protocol for example. A next generation firewall is able to detect and filter by using L7 protocol pattern, means its done on application layer.During the presentation, I will share our experience on developing and integrating Next Generation Firewall using F/OSS stack. I will also share about open opportunities on further research and development in this topics.
