5.0 quality score

We run a couple of automated
scans to help you access a
module's quality. Each module is
given a score based on how well
the author has formatted their
code and documentation and
modules are also checked for
malware using VirusTotal.

Please note, the information below
is for guidance only and neither of
these methods should be considered
an endorsement by Puppet.

  The source port to match for this filter (if the protocol supports
  ports). Will accept a single element or an array.

  For some firewall providers you can pass a range of ports in the format:

Default value: present

gateway

Data type: Optional[Pattern[/^(\d+.\d+.\d+.\d+|\w+:\w+::\w+)$/]] *this data type contains a regex that may not be accurately reflected in generated documentation

  The TEE target will clone a packet and redirect this clone to another
  machine on the local network segment.
  Gateway is the target host's IP.
gid

Data type: Optional[Variant[String[1], Integer]]

  GID or Group owner matching rule.  Accepts a single argument
  only, as iptables does not accept multiple gid in a single
  statement.
  To negate add a space seperated '!' in front of the value.
goto

Data type: Optional[String[1]]

  The value for the iptables --goto parameter. Normal values are:

  * QUEUE
  * RETURN
  * DNAT
  * SNAT
  * LOG
  * MASQUERADE
  * REDIRECT
  * MARK

  But any valid chain name is allowed.
hashlimit_above

  Match if the rate is above amount/quantum.
  This parameter or `hashlimit_upto` and `hashlimit_name` are required when setting any other hashlimit values.
  Allowed forms are '40','40/sec','40/min','40/hour','40/day'.
hashlimit_burst

Data type: Optional[Integer[1]]

  Maximum initial number of packets to match: this number gets recharged by one every time the limit specified above is not reached, up to this number; the default is 5.
  When byte-based rate matching is requested, this option specifies the amount of bytes that can exceed the given rate.
  This option should be used with caution -- if the entry expires, the burst value is reset too.
hashlimit_dstmask

Data type: Optional[Integer[0,32]]

  When --hashlimit-mode srcip is used, all destination addresses encountered will be grouped according to the given prefix length
  and the so-created subnet will be subject to hashlimit.
  Prefix must be between (inclusive) 0 and 32.
  Note that --hashlimit-dstmask 0 is basically doing the same thing as not specifying srcip for --hashlimit-mode, but is technically more expensive.
hashlimit_htable_expire

Data type: Optional[Integer]

  After how many milliseconds do hash entries expire.

  number of seconds.
rsource

Data type: Optional[Boolean]

  Recent module; add the source IP address to the list.
  Mutually exclusive with `rdest`
  The recent module defaults this behaviour to true when recent is set.
rttl

Data type: Optional[Boolean]

  Recent module; may only be used in conjunction with one of `recent =>
  'rcheck'` or `recent => 'update'`. When used, this will narrow the match
  to only happen when the address is in the list and the TTL of the current
  packet matches that of the packet which hit the `recent => 'set'` rule.
  This may be useful if you have problems with people faking their source
  address in order to DoS you via this module by disallowing others access
  to your site by sending bogus packets to you.  Must be boolean true.

  If you wish to negate multiple states at once, then place a ! at the start of the first array
  variable. For example:

      state => ['! INVALID', 'ESTABLISHED']

  Note:
    This will negate all passed states, it is not possible to negate a single one of the array.
    In order to maintain compatibility it is also possible to negate all values given in the array to achieve the same behaviour.

u32

Data type: Optional[Pattern[/^0x[0-9a-fA-F]+&0x[0-9a-fA-F]+=0x[0-9a-fA-F]+(?::0x[0-9a-fA-F]+)?(?:&&0x[0-9a-fA-F]+&0x[0-9a-fA-F]+=0x[0-9a-fA-F]+(?::0x[0-9a-fA-F]+)?)*$/]] *this data type contains a regex that may not be accurately reflected in generated documentation

  Enable the u32 module. Takes as an argument one of set, update,
  rcheck or remove. For example:
    firewall { '032 u32 test':
      ensure   => present,
      table    => 'mangle',
      chain    => 'PREROUTING',
      u32      => '0x4&0x1fff=0x0&&0x0&0xf000000=0x5000000',
      jump     => 'DROP',
    }
uid

Data type: Optional[Variant[String[1], Integer]]

  UID or Username owner matching rule.  Accepts a single argument
  only, as iptables does not accept multiple uid in a single
  statement.
  To negate add a space seperated '!' in front of the value.
week_days

Data type: Optional[Variant[Enum['Mon','Tue','Wed','Thu','Fri','Sat','Sun'], Array[Enum['Mon','Tue','Wed','Thu','Fri','Sat','Sun']]]]

  Only match on the given weekdays.

  Can be passed either as a single value or an array of values:
    week_days => 'Mon',
    week_days => ['Mon', 'Tue', 'Wed'],
zone

Data type: Optional[Integer]

  Assign this packet to zone id and only have lookups done in that zone.

Parameters

The following parameters are available in the firewall type.

name

namevar

Data type: Pattern[/(^\d+(?:[ \t-]\S+)+$)/] *this data type contains a regex that may not be accurately reflected in generated documentation

  The canonical name of the rule. This name is also used for ordering
  so make sure you prefix the rule with a number:

      000 this runs first
      999 this runs last

  Depending on the provider, the name of the rule can be stored using
  the comment feature of the underlying firewall subsystem.

firewallchain

This type provides the capability to manage rule chains for firewalls.

Currently this supports only iptables, ip6tables and ebtables on Linux. And provides support for setting the default policy on chains and tables that allow it.

Providers

  • iptables_chain is the only provider that supports firewallchain.

Features

  • iptables_chain: The provider provides iptables chain features.
  • policy: Default policy (inbuilt chains only).

Properties

The following properties are available in the firewallchain type.

ensure

Data type: Enum[present, absent]

  Whether this chain should be present or absent on the target system.
  Setting this to absent will first remove all rules associated with this chain and then delete the chain itself.
  Inbuilt chains however will merely remove any added rules and, if it has been changed, return their policy to the default.

Default value: present

ignore

Data type: Optional[Variant[String[1], Array[String[1]]]]

  Regex to perform on firewall rules to exempt unmanaged rules from purging.
  This is matched against the output of `iptables-save`.

  This can be a single regex, or an array of them.
  To support flags, use the ruby inline flag mechanism.
  Meaning a regex such as
    /foo/i
  can be written as
    '(?i)foo' or '(?i:foo)'

  Full example:
  ```
  firewallchain { 'INPUT:filter:IPv4':
    purge => true,
    ignore => [
      '-j fail2ban-ssh', # ignore the fail2ban jump rule
      '--comment "[^"]*(?i:ignore)[^"]*"', # ignore any rules with "ignore" (case insensitive) in the comment in the rule
    ],
  }
  ```
ignore_foreign

Data type: Boolean

  Ignore rules that do not match the puppet title pattern "^\d+[[:graph:][:space:]]" when purging unmanaged firewall rules in this chain.
  This can be used to ignore rules that were not put in by puppet. Beware that nothing keeps other systems from configuring firewall rules with a comment that starts with digits, and is indistinguishable from puppet-configured rules.
policy

Data type: Optional[Enum['accept', 'drop', 'queue', 'return']]

  This action to take when the end of the chain is reached.
  This can only be set on inbuilt chains (i.e. INPUT, FORWARD, OUTPUT,
  PREROUTING, POSTROUTING) and can be one of:

  * accept - the packet is accepted
  * drop - the packet is dropped
  * queue - the packet is passed userspace
  * return - the packet is returned to calling (jump) queue
             or the default of inbuilt chains
purge

Data type: Boolean

Whether or not to purge unmanaged rules in this chain

Parameters

The following parameters are available in the firewallchain type.

name

namevar

Data type: Pattern[/^(?:\S+):(?:nat|mangle|filter|raw|rawpost|broute|security):(?:IP(?:v[46])?|ethernet)$/] *this data type contains a regex that may not be accurately reflected in generated documentation

The canonical name of the chain with the required format being {chain}:{table}:{protocol}.
