Switch ACL configuration tools

Project ID: 
109
Current stage: 
Manager: 
Unit: 
What: 

Description: At the moment subnets are either inside or outside our (Linux) firewalls. Provide a way to use the core switches' ACLs to filter internal traffic.

Deliverables: ACL configuration tools, and hence a way to filter internal network traffic.

Why: 

Customer:

Case statement: The switches that we use at the network core have the ability to do some traffic filtering through the use of ACLs, but we don't currently make use of this because it's too inconvenient to program consistently. If we had some tools which could take some reasonable description and compile it into ACL rules then we could make use of this functionality.
