Lesson 1: Configuring Windows Firewall with Advanced Security

Firewalls are a key technology for helping to ensure the security of an information systems infrastructure. Perimeter firewalls act as gateways to provide a first level of defense against network intrusion, but host-based firewalls are equally important for both client and server systems because they provide an additional layer of protection. This lesson examines how to configure the host firewall functionality of Windows Firewall with Advanced Security on Windows Server 2012.

After this lesson, you will be able to

  • Describe the architecture and operation of Windows Firewall with Advanced Security.

  • Explain how firewall profiles work and how they can be configured.
