1 Introduction

The Firewall and Advanced Security Protocol describes managing security policies on remote computers. The specific policies that this protocol manages are those of the firewall and advanced security components. The protocol allows the same functionality that is available locally; it can add, modify, delete, and enumerate policies. It can also enumerate security associations that can be generated between hosts after this policy is enforced.

Sections 1.5, 1.8, 1.9, 2, and 3 of this specification are normative. All other sections and examples in this specification are informative.
