Access policy implementation misconfiguration of firewalls or other local security mechanisms is a major source of security vulnerability. The complex interactions between distributed and layered policy implementation can lead to subtle errors and mask problems. The NetAPT Network Access Policy Tool, co-developed by David M. Nicol and William H. Sanders, performs a comprehensive security policy analysis to identify the deviation of an implementation from global access policy.
