Portsmith is an application-based firewall that is designed to interact with authorized users, and offers an easy-to-use browser driven interface. Portsmith's unique features include its core logic and its interface. Its logic specifies that ports are kept in a closed position until an authorized user logs into the Portsmith interface and triggers them open. When opened, the ports are only accessible from the authorized user's current IP address.
