Where did the CBAC go?

I've got an interesting question a while ago: Do new Cisco routers still use CBAC?

Of course they do, it's just been renamed. The marketing department has decided that Context Based Access Control (CBAC) does not sound nearly so nice as the Cisco IOS Firewall. Even the command structure hasn't changed, you still use the ip inspect commands to configure it, unless, of course, you have IOS release 12.4(6)T or newer, where you can use zone-based policy firewall configuration.
