On page 21, it says:

A firewall is any one of several mechanisms used to control and watch
access to and from a network for the purpose of protecting it.  A
firewall acts as a gateway through which all traffic to and from the
protected network and/or systems passes.  Firewalls help to place
limitations on the amount and type of communication that takes place
between the protected network and the another network (e.g., the
Internet, or another piece of the site's network).
