  • CNet.com: PitBull LX review (2001-04-21 21:00:18)
    "PitBull LX is the Linux version of Argus's Solaris- and AIX-based security software. Unlike firewalls that are primarily meant to prevent intrusion into your server but can allow access once they've been circumvented, PitBull LX's job is to deny someone access, no matter how they've intruded, even if they're logged in over the network as a super user. It does this by allowing you to create segregated access domains that isolate subsystems and processes from each other. You can then assign similar--or different--access rules to any or all of the domains you've created. If an intruder is detected, PitBull LX traps the intruder in the affected domain, leaving the remainder of your server otherwise untouched."
