  Presented by: Ryan Castellucci

    iptables [ http://www.netfilter.org/ ] is a tool for Linux that
    allows system administrators to create rules for filtering network
    packet.  (It is the successor to 'ipchains'.)  The framework enables
    packet filtering, network address [and port] translation (NA[P]T) and
    other packet mangling.

    Its main features include 'stateless' and 'stateful' packet filtering,
    network address and port translation, and multiple layers of API's for
    third-party extensions.  (A large number of plugins/modules are
    available in the 'patch-o-matic' repository.)

    With it, you can build internet firewalls, use NAT and masquerading
    for sharing internet access (e.g., if you don't have enough public IP
    addresses), build sophisticated quality of service (QoS) and policy
    routers, and more.
