Myself and Melanie Kim playing with some metaphors (apologies for bad resolution/contrast; I don't have a scanner so I took photos of the pages)

Thoughts?

Holy moly Mel, these are *FANTASTIC*. My favorite is the Rambo one ;-)

Here's the ones that I think are strongest - I think you should these run by Thomas to see what he thinks:

#3 Force field I think this would be challenging to render for folks to recognize it but it's a good and unique metaphor so it might be worth a shot at trying to render.

#11 Shield It's a good metaphor. The challenge here is distinguishing it from the SELinux iconography which currently consists of a police badge/shield-looking thing, so make sure you review those first if you decide to render this one.

#19 Traffic Cop - my favorite :) I love this metaphor and I think it may be unique enough that you won't have to worry about clashes with other security-related things. It's the strongest metaphor IMHO as well - the firewall really does regulate traffic trying to route through your computer. Additionally, system-config firewall has red/green status icons that are kind of similar to traffic lights so I think even visually the traffic light concept relates to the app.

Based on Thomas' feedback I'd try to render one or more of them (depending on what he thinks) using the gnome-icon-theme style & palette. Unfortunately we don't have great documentation of how to do this but I made a start here: https://fedorahosted.org/design-team/wiki/IconGuidelines
