A Firewall is a piece of hardware and/or software which functions in a networked environment to prevent some communications forbidden by the security policy, analogous to the function of firewalls in building construction. A firewall is also called a Border Protection Device (BPD), or packet filter in BSD contexts. A firewall has the basic task of controlling traffic between different zones of trust.
