Naming the filter policy

By default, filter policies on an SNS firewall do not have explicit names. This does not allow an administrator to easily understand the role of the SNS firewall, or know which policy to apply if there are several. Implementing a naming system makes it possible to:

  • Reflect the function of the SNS firewall through the name of the filter policy, for example, Internet access, isolating traffic for a specific partner, etc.,

  • Reduce processing errors, e.g., by enabling the wrong policy,

  • Uniformly configure the names of filter policies on all SNS firewalls in the IS.

A policy should be implemented setting out filter profile naming criteria, as explained in the guide Recommendations for the definition of a firewall’s filter policy (in French).
