Firewall: Stateful Packet Inspection

This brief interactive activity, by Electromechanical Digital Library and Wisconsin Technical College System faculty members Joseph Wetzel and Brian Gremore, provides a basic introduction to stateful packet inspectors (SPIs). This online lesson gives a definition, examples, and clear explanation of SPIs including illustrations and animations to help the visual learners among us. The user is able to navigate at his or her own pace and is able to re-view and re-read as many times as they need. This is a solid introductory resource to stateful packet inspectors for teachers, students, or the curious.
