Close on the heels of my first co-authoring of a NIST pub being published comes the announcement for the public review of the revision to the NIST firewall guidelines. The NIST process is that every (?) publication goes out for public review before final publication. The gap between the review and final publication can be short or horrendously long due to many bureaucratic factors. Regardless, if you know firewalls, please take a look at the draft and send in comments.
