Introduction to Filter list for JUNOS

Sunday, June 14th, 2009

Junipers JUNOS is a very robust operating system, not only is the OS very advanced but the ASIC heavy design of Juniper hardware is akin to calorie free chocolate bars! Juniper Filter Lists which are non-stateful packet filters similar to Cisco Access-Lists are compiled and processed using hardware, what this means is that you can have as many Filter-Lists as you want and as long as you want without degrading performance.

Juniper is also big on naming things, in JUNOS everything has a name, the Filter Lists have names, the terms in the Filter Lists have names, and even the address’s you are matching on have names. This is a big concept in JUNOS because it allows you to write snippets of Filter-Lists and use them for many different Filter Lists. JUNOS also supports grouping Filter Lists and applying an entire group of filter to an interface. If you apply Filter groups to a JUNOS interface they individual Filter Lists are evaluated in order sequentially.

Content Based Access Control “CBAC”

Tuesday, October 21st, 2008

In the beginning God created heaven and earth, and then he created routers, so packets could flow from one part of the earth to the other. As he rested he looked down on his creation and smiled for all was good. Packets were flowing from one interface to another. Then as he beheld his creation he watches as some pad packets decided to flow where they didn’t belong! So God created access-lists and again everything was as it should be, packets only flowed to areas where they belonged. After some time naughty packets found out that they could sneak by God’s great protectors of the network by setting the ACK bit in their headers.


Introduction to access-lists part 2

Thursday, October 16th, 2008

In the second installment of our guide to access-lists we are going to talk a little about named access-lists, how they work, what the benefits are, and how using them allows us to create reflexive access-lists. Named access-lists are exactly what they sound like, they are an extended access-list that has a name instead of a number. One of the nice features of named access-lists is that each line of the access-list has a number. this way you can delete just one line in an access-list without removing the whole access-list. You can create a named access list by using the following command.


Introduction to access-lists part 1

Today I would like to take some time and talk about security. I want to discuss access-lists, extended access-lists, reflexive access-lists, and CBAC or content based access control. Learning how to properly use access-lists is so crucial to becoming a good network administrator. They are vital to securing your network and as you progress with your studies you will find that access-lists are used quite extensively in routing, QoS, and other important things.
