Permissive Firewall Policy

New to the list, so hope this has not already been covered numerous times.

I have been asked to move from a restrictive policy of only
allowed/permitted ports are allowed through the Firewall to a permissive
policy of deny known ³bad² port/protocols and allow all else.  Does anyone
have lists, bookmarks or the like to show a list of known ³bad² ports?  I
believe this is a bad idea but need some information to prove how difficult
it will be to manage.

Thanks in advance,

Kevin Hinze

Good judgment comes with experience. Unfortunately, the experience
usually comes from bad judgment.
