In case he's too bashful/busy to speak for himself, Brian Catlin presented a
paper at Design SuperCon '95 this spring, entitled:
_Design of a TCP/IP Router With An Internet Firewall Using Windows NT_
...and was demonstrating the resulting implementation at the show. He had a
couple MS people from the NT team with him at his booth, so this may be the
"thingie" of which Larry's rumors speak. And no, the paper doesn't actually
describe the security features he implemented...
Brian can be reached at:

He's posted to this list before, so his email address is probably available
to the sufficiently motivated.
