Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 105821
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:31 EST
The name of the tool seems out of sync with what it is these days. Perhaps it
should be renamed to just "Firewall"?
"Firewall" is a very popular term for non-technical users these days thanks to
recent security events and it may be "more user friendly" to use "Firewall".
Just an opinion :)
The tool is named the way it is because it isn't really a firewall tool.
Originally, there was going to be a "redhat-config-firewall" tool that would
allow more fine-grained firewall configuration. Deveopment on that tool was
delayed, restarted, and then delayed again. Anyway, I'm going to leave the name
of redhat-config-securitylevel the way it is in the event that
redhat-config-firewall gets written one day. :)
