On which of the following should a firewall be placed?

  • Web server
  • Intrusion detection system (IDS) server
  • Screened subnet
  • Domain boundary
Explanation:

A firewall should be placed on a (security) domain boundary. Placing it on a web server or screened subnet, which is a demilitarized zone (DMZ), does not provide any protection. Since firewalls should be installed on hardened servers with minimal services enabled, it is inappropriate to have the firewall and the intrusion detection system (IDS) on the same physical device.
