I wanna ask your ideas on how to setup the security of a network.
I have 6 Computers, 1 router, 1 switch and two ideas.
1st idea :
One of these computers takes the role of a hardware firewall and i attach to it the switch and then to the switch the rest of computers.
In this way firewall-pc will work as Packet filtering , IDS & IPS while the other PCs will be just with their OS and system encryption.
2nd idea :
Here i thought to add ip-tables rules, at all of the PCs plus system encryption and the firewall one only IDS & IPS.
What you think is the best idea for a network like this ?
Maybe i made a mistake somewhere, so any suggestion is welcomed.
Hmm..nobody has an idea or to suggest something
