Well, Management is asking whether, in this scenario; How secure will
be the traffic? They are asking the probability of data being sniffed.
The problem is that i do not have much info regarding the application.

Hi Kartik,

I think it is hard to tell what the risk is without knowing the application
that will be making the connection. That's where the risk might be.

Recently I got a change request which is to be implemented on the
firewall. The requirement is to allow port 3270 from inside network to
a webserver located in the outside world.
I would like to know the Risk/Threats associated with this change. I
dont know what kind of a data would traverse in this setup but most
likely its going to be something related with financial transactions.

Thanx & Regards
