Firewall policy in InitialPolicy-checkpoint-gaia,secureplatform

Vendor: checkpoint

OS: gaia,secureplatform

Description:
indeni will alert when a Check Point firewall is running with the InitialPolicy policy.

Remediation Steps:
Ensure a valid policy is installed.

How does this work?
An MD5 hash is calculated along with the policy name.

Why is this important?
If all members of a cluster do not have the same security policy installed, unexpected issues can arise after a failover.

Without Indeni how would you find this?
An administrator could login and manually check which policy is installed, and when it was installed, comparing between all cluster members.
