How can an application get vendor information about a firewall?

How can an application get vendor-specific information about the running firewall?
It depends upon the API that might be provided by the host firewall. For example Windows XP SP2 "Security Center" detects the presence of firewalls and anti-virus solutions and monitors them thru various APIs provided by them.
