Heimdall's Limited provides high level security and networking services in New Zealand.

Apart from consulting and project services, Heimdall's provides a gui for iptables. We had problems convincing customers that iptables is a powerful and reliable firewall alternative. As a result, we wrote a powerful management interface for iptables. Bifrost manages the incoming and outgoing traffic flows with two rule sets in a very complex and powerful way. After the first public release, it did not take more than a few weeks until there were over 1000 installations of Bifrost (demo).

Based on demands from some of our licensed customers we wanted to implement High Availability for Bifrost. This was done with Heartbeat. It took a fair amount of lab work to get it right and to figure out what to do. We realised that if people have problems configuring iptables, they may have problems configuring Heartbeat. We therefore implemented Heartbeat management in Bifrost

High on the list is to implement VPN (freeswan) with Heartbeat. We have it working stably and reliably in the lab. We hope to have it implemented in V0.9.3 of Bifrost.

We are very happy with the reliability of Linux HA. We are deeply impressed with the work on following standards and high quality of code. Well done and congratulations to a success. And keep up the good work.
