Projects / libnfnetlink


libnfnetlink is a low-level userspace library for nfnetlink-based communication between the kernel-side netfilter and the user-space world. It is therefore the fundamental layer for all other nfnetlink-enabled user-space programs interfacing with the netfilter subsystem of the Linux kernel.
