Netfilter is a free software community-driven project, launched in 1998, that provides the popular iptables firewalling tool for the GNU/Linux operating system. Starting Linux kernel 3.13, it also provides nftables, a new packet classification engine written from scratch that aims to resolve the existing design limitations of iptables, while retaining backward compatibility.
