Netfilter is a free software community-driven project, launched in 1998, that provides firewalling tools for the GNU/Linux operating system. The Netfilter Workshop (NFWS) is the main event organized for and by the Netfilter developers community. During the workshop days, Linux kernel networking and Netfilter developers meet and discuss the status of the on-going Netfilter-related developments and the plans for the near future.
