I am a newbie here and also to c++.
I am working on linux,with programming mainly on C and areas of interest being Firewall & IPS.
I have some doubts,would be really grateful if anyone can help me.
1. Can we create a firewall code in C++?
2. "Can we prepare a kernel module in C++ on linux ?"
3. What are the applications of C++ on linux?

1. Yes
2. Yes
3. Writing C++ programs. It's not much use for anything else.

This is all "competent programmer" stuff though. I suggest you learn programming before you start trying to create firewalls, kernel modules and other large projects. If this were a mechanic course you'd just have got the hang of a screwdriver and now wanted to build the International Space Station.
