Geolocation for nftables
Thank you to the Geolocation for nftables team for sharing their project with us. Have a similar open-source security project that you think the LinuxSecurity audience would be interested in learning about? Please do not hesitate to reach out!
We wanted to let you know about a free, open-source firewall solution that can help to prevent malware from “phoning home”. The project can be found on GitHub and allows geo filtering on nftables firewalls. This simple software runs on Linux servers, desktops and other systems such as the Raspberry Pi.
Geolocation for nftables is a Bash script to create nftables sets of country specific IP address ranges for use with firewall rulesets. The project provides a simple and flexible way to implement geo filtering with nftables.
