Project for powerful firewall
July 06, 2009 07:40AM
I am working on hobby project. I want to create a powerful transparent firewall witch I want to deploy in large data center.
The firewall will consists of transparent proxy server + iptables + IDS system(Snort) + LDAP server witch will host the IPs witch cat pass the firewall.
Look this web page:

In this example squid proxy server is configured to ask for every packet can he pass in LDAP server using perl script.
My questions are:
1. Can Nginx be configured using the perl script to ask the LDAP server for permission to let the packet pass to the internal network like the example with squid?

2. Can Nginx forward from internet to the internal network many gigabits and millions of connections if I install it on a powerful server? I don't need caching in my case.

Is it better solution to use other proxy - squid, varnish
