I just installed Checkpoint´s Firewall-1 in a cascaded configuration with a
proxy and could not detect any security holes myself using standard
In order to make a really tough test before I actually connect the gateway
to our network, I could ask some people I know in the Underground to spread
the IP-Address, maybe the HW/SW-Configuration and perhaps even the
FW-1-Settings and invite the guys to try it out and break in (into the
empty network behind it).
Question: Is this a wise thing to do / Has anybody "invited" Hackers in
such a fashion?
(I trust security consultants to help me set up a secure site, but not to
drive a serious attack as a test)
