Stateful Firewall

A stateful firewall is a firewall that keeps track of the state of network connections (such as TCP streams, UDP communication) traveling across it. Khalijiah NGFW offers grouping of Firewall Rules by Category, a great feature for more demanding network setups.

Aliases & GeoLite Country Database

Managing firewall rules have never been this easy. By using Aliases you can group mulitple IP’s or Host into one list, to be used in firewall rules. Additionally IP or Hostnames can be fetched from external URLs, examples are DROP (Do Not Route Or Peer),’s Ransomware tracker and the built-in Maxmind GeoLite2 Country database.

Traffic Shaper

Traffic shaping within Khalijiah NGFW is very flexible and is organised around pipes, queues and corresponding rules. The pipes define the allowed bandwidth, the queues can be used to set a weight within the pipe and finally the rules are used to apply the shaping to a certain package flow. The shaping rules are handled independently from the firewall rules and other settings.

Two-factor authentication

Two-factor authentication also known as 2FA or 2-Step Verification is an authentication method that requires two components, such as a pin/password + a token. Khalijiah NGFW offers full support for Two-factor authentication ( 2FA ) throughout the entire system utilising TOTP with for instance Google Authenticator.

Supported 2FA services include:

  • Khalijiah NGFW Graphical User Interface
  • Captive Portal
  • Virtual Private Networking – OpenVPN & IPsec
  • Caching Proxy

Captive Portal

Captive Portal allows you to force authentication, or redirection to a click through page for network access. This is commonly used on hot spot networks, but is also widely used in corporate networks for an additional layer of security on wireless or Internet access. Khalijiah NGFW offer most enterprise features including Radius and voucher support.

Virtual Private Network - IPsec & OpenVPN GUI

Khalijiah NGFW offers a wide range of VPN technologies ranging from modern SSL VPN’s to well known IPsec as well as older (now considered insecure) legacy options such as L2TP and PPTP. Site-to-Site and road warrior setups are possible and with the integrated OpenVPN client exporter, the client can be configured within minutes. Looking for a IPsec or OpenVPN GUI, you just found something better!

High Availability / Hardware Failover (CARP)

Khalijiah NGFW utilises the Common Address Redundancy Protocol or CARP for hardware failover. Two or more firewalls can be configured as a failover group. If one interface fails on the primary or the primary goes offline entirely, the secondary becomes active. Utilising this powerful feature of Khalijiah NGFW creates a fully redundant firewall with automatic and seamless fail-over. While switching to the backup network connections will stay active with minimal interruption for the users.

Caching Proxy

The caching proxy offered by Khalijiah NGFW is fully featured and includes category based webfiltering, extensive Access Control Lists and can run in transparent mode. The proxy can be combined with the traffic shaper to enhance user experience. Integration with most professional Anti-Virus solutions is possble trough the ICAP interface.

Intrusion Detection & Prevention

The inline IPS system of Khalijiah NGFW is based on Suricata and utilises Netmap to enhance performance and minimize cpu utilisation. This deep packet inspection system is very powerful and can be used to mitigate security threats at wire speed.

Integrated support for ET Open rules.
The ETOpen Ruleset is an excellent anti-malware IDS/IPS ruleset that enables users with cost constraints to significantly enhance their existing network-based malware detection.
Integrated SSL Blacklist (SSLBL)
A project maintained by The goal is to provide a list of “bad” SSL certificates identified by to be associated with malware or botnet activities. SSLBL relies on SHA1 fingerprints of malicious SSL certificates and offers various blacklists.
Intergrated Feodo Tracker
Feodo (also known as Cridex or Bugat) is a Trojan used to commit ebanking fraud and steal sensitive information from the victims computer, such as credit card details or credentials. At the moment, Feodo Tracker is tracking four versions of Feodo.

SSL Finger Printing

The IPS option to allow user defined rules include the option for SSL fingerprinting. With this option SSL communication can be blocked at the inital connection attempt by dropping the SSL key exchange.
