Using iptables to rate-limit incoming connections

Post date: December 16, 2005, 22:12 Category: Network Views: 3486 Comments
Tutorial quote: There are times when you have to allow arbitary incoming connections, when you are travelling for example.

In these situations you can open up your system to allow incoming connections and be the target of a dictionary attack - literally a machine trying to connect and login over and over again using usernames and passwords from a dictionary.

In this situation you can create a collection of firewalling rules which will deny access from remote clients who attempt to connect "too many" times.

How To Limit CPU Usage Of A Process With cpulimit (Debian/Ubuntu)

Post date: September 14, 2009, 09:09 Category: Miscellaneous Views: 3365 Comments
Tutorial quote: This tutorial shows how you can limit the CPU usage of a process with the tool cpulimit on Debian/Ubuntu. cpulimit is a simple program that attempts to limit the CPU usage of a process (expressed in percentage, not in cpu time). This is useful to control batch jobs, when you don't want them to eat too much CPU. It does not act on the nice value or other scheduling priority stuff, but on the real CPU usage. Also, it is able to adapt itself to the overall system load, dynamically and quickly.

iptables: The Linux Firewall Administration Program

Post date: November 29, 2005, 20:11 Category: Network Views: 2862 Comments
Tutorial quote: This chapter covers the iptables firewall administration program used to build a Netfilter firewall. For those of you who are familiar with or accustomed to the older ipfwadm and ipchains programs used with the IPFW technology, iptables will look very similar to those programs. However, it is much more feature-rich and flexible, and it is very different on subtle levels.

Three tools to help you configure iptables

Post date: May 25, 2005, 14:05 Category: Network Views: 3108 Comments
Tutorial quote: Every user whose client connects to the Internet should configure his firewall immediately after installation. Some Linux distributions include firewall configuration as a part of installation, often offering a set of defaults configurations to choose from. However, to ensure that your machine presents the minimum "attack surface" (a measure of the number of vulnerable ports, user accounts, and sockets exposed to attack) to the predatory inhabitants of the Internet, you may need to do some manual configuration of your firewall. Here are three tools that can help.
The Linux kernel (version 2.4 onwards) contains a framework for packet filtering and firewalling using netfilter and iptables. Netfilter is a set of hooks inside the Linux kernel that allows kernel modules to register callback functions with the network stack. Iptables is a generic table structure for the definition of rulesets. Each rule within an IP table consists of a number of classifiers (iptables matches) and one connected action (iptables target). Iptables has extensive documentation that can be accessed online or by typing man iptables at the command line. Yet despite the depth of the documentation available for iptables, its complexity can be baffling.

Bandwidth monitoring with iptables

Post date: December 27, 2005, 15:12 Category: Network Views: 3690 Comments
Tutorial quote: Linux has a number of useful bandwidth monitoring and management programs. A quick search on Freshmeat.net for bandwidth returns a number of applications. However, if all you need is a basic overview of your total bandwidth usage, iptables is all you really need -- and it's already installed if you're using a Linux distribution based on the 2.4.x or 2.6.x kernels.

Step-By-Step Configuration of NAT with iptables

Post date: November 22, 2006, 18:11 Category: Network Views: 5678 Comments
Tutorial quote: This tutorial shows how to set up network-address-translation (NAT) on a Linux system with iptables rules so that the system can act as a gateway and provide internet access to multiple hosts on a local network using a single public IP address. This is achieved by rewriting the source and/or destination addresses of IP packets as they pass through the NAT system.
