Quite often on Ubuntu forums starts all over again a topic concerning
application based firewall:
TuxGuardian - application based firewall
I need an outbound GUI software firewall
I'm sure there are a few more to find, also on Ubuntu brainstorm.
Idea #26902: Give users "global control" over applications' outgoing
Idea #26828: GUI application to manage chroot environment
I wonder what Canonical team thinks about this discussion. Could you
give any feedback.
I'm a new Ubuntu / Linux user and as many others in my position I find
it difficult to learn advanced security programs like Apparmor, SElinux,
Basically all arguments were presented in those discussions.
I think you are perfectly aware that most new Ubuntu users comes from MS
windows and would like to have an easy, user friendly application to
control various aspects of internet security. Besides there are other
interesting, new security solutions like this on Chrome OS, or not
developed yet Qubes OS, based on Xen virtualisation, sadbox's.
