Welcome to the home of the firewall builder for configuring a dual-stack nftables firewall.
Bearwall is a firewall builder that allows you to easily manage complex security policy on a linux host by separating your policies into reusable classes and rulesets.
Bearwall reads in your firewall policy, defined in Bash, and generates the appropriate nftables chains and rules to implement consistent policy for a dual-stacked host.
