func GetChainLines

func GetChainLines(table Table, save []byte) map[Chain][]byte

GetChainLines parses a table's iptables-save data to find chains in the table. It returns a map of iptables.Chain to []byte where the []byte is the chain line from save (with counters etc.). Note that to avoid allocations memory is SHARED with save.

func IsNotFoundError

func IsNotFoundError(err error) bool

IsNotFoundError returns true if the error indicates "not found". It parses the error string looking for known values, which is imperfect; beware using this function for anything beyond deciding between logging or ignoring an error.

func MakeChainLine

func MakeChainLine(chain Chain) string

MakeChainLine return an iptables-save/restore formatted chain line given a Chain


type Chain

type Chain string

Chain represents the different rules

const (
	// ChainPostrouting used for source NAT in nat table
	ChainPostrouting Chain = "POSTROUTING"
	// ChainPrerouting used for DNAT (destination NAT) in nat table
	ChainPrerouting Chain = "PREROUTING"
	// ChainOutput used for the packets going out from local
	ChainOutput Chain = "OUTPUT"
	// ChainInput used for incoming packets
	ChainInput Chain = "INPUT"
	// ChainForward used for the packets for another NIC
	ChainForward Chain = "FORWARD"

type FlushFlag

type FlushFlag bool

FlushFlag an option flag for Flush

const FlushTables FlushFlag = true

FlushTables a boolean true constant for option flag FlushFlag

const NoFlushTables FlushFlag = false

NoFlushTables a boolean false constant for option flag FlushFlag

type Interface

type Interface interface {
	// EnsureChain checks if the specified chain exists and, if not, creates it.  If the chain existed, return true.
	EnsureChain(table Table, chain Chain) (bool, error)
	// FlushChain clears the specified chain.  If the chain did not exist, return error.
	FlushChain(table Table, chain Chain) error
	// DeleteChain deletes the specified chain.  If the chain did not exist, return error.
	DeleteChain(table Table, chain Chain) error
	// EnsureRule checks if the specified rule is present and, if not, creates it.  If the rule existed, return true.
	EnsureRule(position RulePosition, table Table, chain Chain, args ...string) (bool, error)
	// DeleteRule checks if the specified rule is present and, if so, deletes it.
	DeleteRule(table Table, chain Chain, args ...string) error
	// IsIpv6 returns true if this is managing ipv6 tables
	IsIpv6() bool
	// SaveInto calls `iptables-save` for table and stores result in a given buffer.
	SaveInto(table Table, buffer *bytes.Buffer) error
	// Restore runs `iptables-restore` passing data through []byte.
	// table is the Table to restore
	// data should be formatted like the output of SaveInto()
	// flush sets the presence of the "--noflush" flag. see: FlushFlag
	// counters sets the "--counters" flag. see: RestoreCountersFlag
	Restore(table Table, data []byte, flush FlushFlag, counters RestoreCountersFlag) error
	// RestoreAll is the same as Restore except that no table is specified.
	RestoreAll(data []byte, flush FlushFlag, counters RestoreCountersFlag) error
	// Monitor detects when the given iptables tables have been flushed by an external
	// tool (e.g. a firewall reload) by creating canary chains and polling to see if
	// they have been deleted. (Specifically, it polls tables[0] every interval until
	// the canary has been deleted from there, then waits a short additional time for
	// the canaries to be deleted from the remaining tables as well. You can optimize
	// the polling by listing a relatively empty table in tables[0]). When a flush is
	// detected, this calls the reloadFunc so the caller can reload their own iptables
	// rules. If it is unable to create the canary chains (either initially or after
	// a reload) it will log an error and stop monitoring.
	// (This function should be called from a goroutine.)
	Monitor(canary Chain, tables []Table, reloadFunc func(), interval time.Duration, stopCh <-chan struct{})
	// HasRandomFully reveals whether `-j MASQUERADE` takes the
	// `--random-fully` option.  This is helpful to work around a
	// Linux kernel bug that sometimes causes multiple flows to get
	// mapped to the same IP:PORT and consequently some suffer packet
	// drops.
	HasRandomFully() bool

Interface is an injectable interface for running iptables commands. Implementations must be goroutine-safe.

func New

func New(exec utilexec.Interface, protocol Protocol) Interface

New returns a new Interface which will exec iptables.

type Protocol

type Protocol byte

Protocol defines the ip protocol either ipv4 or ipv6

const (
	// ProtocolIpv4 represents ipv4 protocol in iptables
	ProtocolIpv4 Protocol = iota + 1
	// ProtocolIpv6 represents ipv6 protocol in iptables

type RestoreCountersFlag

type RestoreCountersFlag bool

RestoreCountersFlag is an option flag for Restore

const NoRestoreCounters RestoreCountersFlag = false

NoRestoreCounters a boolean false constant for the option flag RestoreCountersFlag

const RestoreCounters RestoreCountersFlag = true

RestoreCounters a boolean true constant for the option flag RestoreCountersFlag

type RulePosition

type RulePosition string

RulePosition holds the -I/-A flags for iptable

const (
	// Prepend is the insert flag for iptable
	Prepend RulePosition = "-I"
	// Append is the append flag for iptable
	Append RulePosition = "-A"

type Table

type Table string

Table represents different iptable like filter,nat, mangle and raw

const (
	// TableNAT represents the built-in nat table
	TableNAT Table = "nat"
	// TableFilter represents the built-in filter table
	TableFilter Table = "filter"
	// TableMangle represents the built-in mangle table
	TableMangle Table = "mangle"
