    Hi Ravindhar,

     

    set security zones security-zone untrust interfaces all

    <This commands puts all interface under one security zone, so you don't have to configure interface one by one under zone hierarchy>.

     

    Any  idea when this cli would be useful.

    <I personally don't see it useful because in traditionally firewall environment nobody is going to put all interface under one zone>.

     

     

    Regards,

    Deepak

    I found it useful in a lazy kind of way when I was studying routing (on srx'es). When you add all interfaces to the zone like that, you can have all the interfaces in the same zone, doesn't matter if they're in different routing instances. But no, no real environment will have this configuration.

    I see it mostly useful as a templating or starting point mechanism.  It's a quick way to set a baseline.

     

    1 - put all interfaces in untrust by default

    2 - selectively move interfaces into other / new zones as needed

     

    It just helps keep track of where things are.  If it's not useful for you, you don't need to use it.  That's why it's hidden.  Smiley Wink
