Re: Linux As A Firewall
Nope, not by itself.
There are lots of guides to create
* a secure network
* a locked down Linux
* a locked down MS-Windows
* a router
* a firewall
* an IPS/IDS
You can do these things inside virtual machines if you like, but some things like firewalls and routers are best inside dedicated hardware. Sure, you could build them inside a VM and it might be more secure than without them, but the ability to make a tiny mistake and not have any security exists.
Every OS should run a firewall, even if there's a network-based firewall. Whenever possible a network firewall should be used too.
