Userspace utility for Linux packet filtering
nftables is the project that aims to replace the existing ip,ip6,arp,ebtables framework. Basically, this project provides a new packet filtering framework, a new userspace utility and also a compatibility layer for ip,ip6tables. nftables is built upon the building blocks of the Netfilter infrastructure such as the existing hooks, the connection tracking system, the userspace queueing component and the logging subsystem.
