Abstract
To gain more security in application-layer, current firewalls employ deeper inspection into the application layer, which can impact the customer network due to the additional processing burden, especially during traffic peaks or attacks. To figure out the trade-off between the network security and performance, we present a new method in this paper to generate testing traffic for the stateful firewall evaluation which can both be used to explore the boundary performance of the stateful firewall under certain security level, and characterize a specific customer network to evaluate the performance of the stateful firewall before its implementation to this customer network.
