Firewalls have become the most essential part that is deployed on the Internet for protecting the private networks. Optimizing firewall rules is very critical for enhancing the performance of a network. The early work on firewall optimization focuses on either intra-firewall or inter-firewall optimization within one administrative domain where the privacy of firewall policies is not a concern. The main technical challenge to focus on is that firewall policies cannot be disclosed across domains because a firewall policy contains secret information and even potential security holes, which can be easily utilized by attackers.
