What is the best place in a network to redistribute a default route from?
Distribution, Edge distribution, Core?
Right now we have our two routers attached to a distribution and sending a default inside. We are thinking to move them and attach them to the core. Is it good place? from other side they are attached to a firewalls, firewalls point to our Internet routers. They get a default from ISP routers. But those routers do not redistribute that default. Only those on our distribution. What is the recommendation and best practice for sending a default from ?
A bit unclear whether you're asking where the default should be distributed, logically or physically. I think you're asking about physically. However, logically, best distribution point usually is the router closest to the default path and "knows" whether such path is good. (In your example, those connected to the FWs.)
Physically, I would try to have the shortest physical path (fewest router hops) to/from the default path for hosts that are using it. Placement, though, would be impacted by many other possible considerations, which can range from "politics" (i.e. who maintains particular devices) to I've run out of ports on the device I desire to use.

Internet security is important with the increasing attacks that are happening every day. Many internet and browsing security solutions exist, but some are not very easy to use or maybe the question is how can I enable them?
