ACLHound takes as input policy language following a variant of the [AFPL2]  syntax and compiles a representation specific for the specified vendor which can be deployed on firewall devices.
ACLHound is designed to assist humans in managing hundreds of ACLs across tens of devices. One key focus point is maximum re-usability of ACL components such as groups of hosts, groups of ports and the policies themselves.
Step 1: get the code
` sudo pip install aclhound `
