  • Integrates with Apache2 with mod WSGI.
  • Assimilator gives a full RESTful experience for free.

How it works

All firewalls share a common ground on their configuration, for example:

  • List of commands showing the actual configuration (AKA the running configuration).
  • Rules or policies filtering IP packets.
  • Objects:
  • Addresses (i.e. <-> Administration_Server).
  • Address group (i.e. Administration_Farm <-> [ Administration_Server01 , Administration_Server02 ]).
  • Port or service (i.e. TCP/80 <-> http).
  • Port or service group (i.e. Application_ports <-> { TCP/6600 , TCP/6610 }).
  • Interfaces.
  • Zones.
  • Routing table.
  • PBR (policy based route).

Assimilator makes it possible to configure via the five RESTful methods all these portions of configuration with JSON objects:

  • GET: Show the object.
  • POST: Add new object.
  • PATCH: Append new data to object.
  • PUT: Replace data in object.
  • DELETE: Remove object from configuration
