Linux's Next-Generation Firewall
Nftables promises to be the future of Linux firewalls. Meet iptables' replacement.
Q: Why should I be concerned about what Christian hip-hop artist Nate Feuerstein does with his tables?
A: Not NF's tables, but nftables (or Netfilter tables). It's the name of the next-generation firewall for Linux.
Q: Firewall? That sounds like a pretty horrible thing. Even if the fire doesn't spread, the smoke damage would be catastrophic for the interior decoration. I can't imagine it'd be too good for the computer either, especially as the fan that's supposed to keep the CPU cool would only make the fire hotter. You can keep your pyromania to yourself, thank you very much.
