Are you seriously trying to argue that a Cisco ASA somehow isn't a firewall
because ICSA certification is in process and hasn't been granted yet ?

Since I've not making a statement of it being or not being a firewall,

Our hair splitting chum has said precisely that regarding non ICSA
certified firewalls.

"I'll remind everyone that until it's been proven to be a firewall by
some independent authority on the matter as accepted by the community,
that it's not a firewall either. "

"As it is now, unless we inspect the code, line by line, and then run a
battery of tests against the inside and outside interfaces, we don't know
if it's a firewall. "
