Policy based routing

L2 Linker

Hi,

 

Do we need a security policy, once the PBR configured in the firewall?

 

OR 

 

FW just forward the packet to the Egress interface and not look for the security policy.

 

Thanks.

Hi Chirag,

 

As per the Policy-Based Forwarding concept, the PBF rules are checked before the routing table and if any match then the routing table is skipped and send to next-hop as per policy configuration.

So Security policies are to permit or deny traffic and PBF rules are used to decide where traffic should go to.
