Great Circle Associates logo Firewalls Mailing List  

The Firewalls mailing list is for discussions of Internet firewall security systems and related issues. Relevant topics include the design, construction, operation, maintenance, and philosophy of Internet firewall security systems.

The Firewalls mailing list was created by Great Circle Associates in September 1992, and was hosted here until April 1998, when it was moved to a new home at GNAC. In June 2002, the list was moved again, to its current home at the Internet Software Consortium.

This web site provides access to the archives of the Firewalls mailing list from the period when it was hosted by Great Circle Associates, from the list's creation in September 1992 until it moved to GNAC in April 1998. For archives after April 1998, see the current Firewalls mailing list web page hosted by the Internet Software Consortium.

Archives

All messages sent to the list while it was hosted by Great Circle Associates (from the list's creation in September 1992 until it moved to GNAC in April 1998) are publicly available in a web-based archive, as well as searchable via Google and other search engines.

Messages sent to the list after it moved to GNAC in April 1998 (and, eventually, further moved to ISC) are available via the current Firewalls mailing list web page hosted by the Internet Software Consortium.

We strongly believe that searchable archives of past messages are one of the most important features of Internet mailing lists such as this one, and that it's critical that those archives be complete and accurate representations of the discussions on the list. Therefore, as a general rule we will not honor requests to edit the archives to remove or modify particular postings. So, subscribers were advised to be thoughtful before posting; as they were going to have to live with whatever they said being in the archives forever, searchable by employers, family members, etc.

The email address that messages were posted from will likely be harvested from the archives by spammers. We have carefully considered this problem, and concluded that there really isn't any way we can prevent that while still maintaining useful and searchable archives. Subscribers were advised to take whatever steps they felt were appropriate to protect themselves, such as using a strong spam-filtering system or posting from throw-away accounts.
