RULE CREATION & DISPLAY: Human error factor could be eliminated simply by...
« Reply #120 on: November 18, 2007, 01:48:40 PM »
When entering ing policies, such as network security policies there is a big human error factor introduced to the way the policies are displayed on screen.

Aside from the fact that:  On many screens when information is edited throughout the program... the highlighted row returns to the top row instead of remaining on the just edited row....  here is a real issue (IMHO)

When you create policies, you try to enter a description which reflects the policy you have just created...

Now when you review these policies in this screen, it may not actually reflect what you have created as a policy.  (human error factor during selection / setup of policy.)  From this point on... the policy's description is incorrect!

Now entering in a description is fine.. BUT HERE IS WHAT IS NEEDED:
In addition to the entered description...  The actual policy rules reflected on the review screen (ie. application and global rules screen) should reflect actual rules (using [] brackets) to reflect the actual created rule.)  (Sort of like how rules are reflected in MS Outlook Express....)

For the users recollection, first show his description (intended rule)...
Here is an example...

User Desc: Let PC talk to WIFI card  Created As:[ALLOW] [IP] [OUT] where source [ZONE] is [ANY] and destination [ZONE] is [Intel(R) Wireless WiFi Link] with IP details [IP protocol] [ANY]

Most importantly, show what he actually created...
That way, when a user reviews his rules... his selection errors are displayed!

Also, a tag flag to display on screen when the rule is fired wold be smart.

When allowing an app to run as an updater or installer, the "DONE" dialogue box needs to have the "Always on top" attribute set, as if you don't respond (i.e. it's hidden under an apps window), Defense+ stays in installation mode.
