Firewall Steve - a visual firewall tool

Firewall Steve is a system to visually inspect an iptables firewall ruleset. It will have two parts, a flow graph and an interactive sifting engine.

While there might be tools out there that do these two tasks, I've yet to find them. Granted, I might be putting too much stock into the power of Google to find them for me, but who doesn't?

The main technologies behind Firewall Steve will be iptables, XML, Graphviz and PHP.

Firewall Steve?

The name came from a messily-written item on my whiteboard to-do list - "firewall sieve" - and its subsequent misreading by a co-worker.
