mentioned), support for VPNs with compliance to RFCs 1825-1829, pager
support, and inbound ftp proxying.

come with the Trusted Computing Base which keeps and compares checksums of
all critical system files (using tcbck). The FW files can be added to the
TCB. Although not in the current beta, the developers are working on MD5
hashing of FW system files.
