firewall placement and choice of firewalls

Group,

Here is a design question I would like to open up.

Hypothetical network with BGP facing the internet and OSPF as the RP
internally. Here's a quick sketch:




-----------------------------------------internet---------------------------
------------------
|
|
BGP
|
|
-----------------------------------------CPE
network-----------------------------------------
|
|
OSPF AREA0
|
|
-------OSPF AREA1------------OSPF AREA2-----------------OSPF AREA3----
| |
|

| |
|

FW1 FW2
FW3
| |
|

| |
|

The idea here being is using ACLs on the routers up until firewalls, maybe
placing an IDS between area0 and BGP. Checkpoint is a good firewall
solution as you get the logging feature, allowing you to not have a "blind"
network.

Does anyone out there know of a solution that provides the logs of a PIX
firewall to be seen on the level of CheckPoint?
