What is a network security firewall?
A firewall is a network security service system designed to protect the computer systems from undesired network access or self-spreading worms that infiltrate the computer through open network ports.
How does a firewall system work?

Firewalls work by inspecting data packets (small chunks of data) against an internal list of rules. Some of the common methods used are:

IP addresses – filter out traffic from suspicious IPs

Domain names – block traffic from known malicious domains

Ports – deny traffic trying to enter through a certain port

Contents – block data packets having certain keywords
