Security considerations Rewriter or PTP

Hi,

I was wondering if someone could explain me the security implications of choosing PTP over using the rewriter for a web application. I know that Juniper recommends using the rewriter, but if there are functional limitations to the applications when using the rewriter pass-through-proxy is recommended. I'd like to know what additional security risks may be involved when choosing one over the other (if any).

Kind regards,

JH

Re: Security considerations Rewriter or PTP

Hi JH,

irrespective of the access mechanism, Rewriter or PTP the trafiic will flow through the SA, Just that for PTP additional configuration would be required like registering a hostname or allowing one of the port in the range 11000 - 11099.
