My Firewall / Iptables Scripts

This is a list of my firewall (iptables) scripts I use to secure my boxes. They're all licensed under the terms of the GPL.

Note: This is work in progress and will be updated from time to time. If you have any comments, corrections or suggestions, feel free to contact me.

The firewall scripts:

  • fw_laptop — An iptables script intended to secure laptops and desktop boxes (i.e. not public servers)
  • fw_blockall — An iptables script which blocks all traffic (INPUT, OUTPUT and FORWARD). Not even traffic to/from localhost is allowed. All pings are disabled (normal and broadcast).
