 Host-Based Firewalls Implemented With Linux iptabl

Informit brings us: Securing Linux Systems With Host-Based Firewalls Implemented With Linux iptables.

"Host-based firewalls offer improved protection against the previously mentioned threats, and software is widely available for many systems.

However, constructing a good set of rules that adequately protects a host is not trivial."
