administration tool for kernel IP sets
IP sets are a framework inside the Linux 2.4.x and 2.6.x kernel which can be administered by the ipset(8) utility. Depending on the type, an IP set may store IPv4 addresses, TCP/UDP port numbers, or IPv4 addresses with MAC addresses in a way which ensures lightning speed when matching an entry against a set.
If you want to
* store multiple IPv4 addresses or port numbers and match against the entire collection using a single iptables rule;
* dynamically update iptables rules against IPv4 addresses or ports without performance penalty;
* express complex IPv4 address and ports based rulesets with a single iptables rule and benefit from the speed of IP sets;
then IP sets may be the proper tool for you. .
