1.  Have any of you used the IPv6 IPSEC equivalent yet?  Tunnel or transport mode?  Vendor hardware?  Difficulties?

2.  I've pondered a cloud based service for web acceleration/filtering.  Perhaps it would use Riverbeds for bandwidth 
optimization via compression, dedupe, etc....?  Anything like that out there?

3.  If it doesn't do WAP, then it's an old fashioned firewall--and quite possibly obsolete.  These days, the firewall 
has to encompass the whole stack (except layer 8--the user).  I guess you could make specific cases like for networks 
that don't exchange HTTP/S traffic.  But seriously, if your firewall doesn't understand the protocols it is passing, if 
it doesn't enforce RFCs to some extent, if it doesn't do sanity checking on bounds, and true protocol inspection... 
then what is it doing?  :-)

It's quiet here- I'd like to stir up some discussion...

Thoughts on IPv6?
Thoughts on "Cloud Firewalls?"
Thoughts on Web Application Firewalls?
