    Security reviews of the firewall?

    Is there anywhere I can read reviews of the firewall in Ubuntu?

    If you wish to learn how it works, go to the netfilter web site:

    No, I'd like to know about its performance in comparision to commerical firewalls for other OSs. I'm curious to see if my protection is some what weakened by using the built in firewall.

    If you look at the wikipedia page here you can see a few charts that compare several firewalls. I think you'll see that iptables gets the green light on about everything listed.
