System firewalls - comparison, tests...?


I'm writing a final work to receive the Master of Science title at AGH

- University of Science and Technology, Cracow, Poland. I'm writing about security provided by operating system build-in firewalls. Do you know (or have) some materials about system firewalls comparison? I'm especially interested in complex tests of the firewalls.

The list of firewalls I'm planning to write about:

- Windows XP SP2 Firewall

- Windows Vista Firewall

- Mac OS X Leopard Firewall

- Linux iptables

- BSD IPFilter and/or ipfirewall

The internet is full of studies and comparisons (like "Firewall Chellenge" on but I don't know any of the cross-platform firewall tests...

Thank you in advance, Piotr Knapik
