Usually, unlike stateful-packet filtering firewalls for dynamic data masking, application-layer firewalls are always aware of certain applications, for instance the Web, SQL, and e-mail. Also, these multi-talented firewalls prohibit direct connections from the Internet to your servers by assuming the proxy role between the applications you serve (Web, E-mail, FTP, etc.) to the rest of the wired world.

Decisions based on protocol Enterprise networks can no longer allow or deny traffic based on protocol alone. Now that exploits through common and necessary protocols (HTTP, SMTP, etc…) have become frequent. They must employ firewalls for dynamic data masking capable of inspecting protocol data in the TCP header.

Application-layer firewalls usually act as both client and server, by ‘proxying’ the data between …

Firewall policies for dynamic data masking are certain rules and regulations that dictate how database firewalls should handle network traffic for specific IP addresses and address ranges, protocols, applications, and content types based on the organization’s information security firewall policies.

Dynamic Data Masking

Before a firewall policy is created, some form of risk analysis should be carried out to develop a list of the types of traffic needed by the organization and categorize how they must be secured—including which types of traffic can traverse a firewall under what circumstances. This risk analysis should be based on an evaluation of threats; vulnerabilities; countermeasures in place to mitigate vulnerabilities; and the impact if systems or data are compromised.

Firewall policies should be documented in …
