2023-02-07, 16:20–16:45, B.2.015

Firewall Builder is an easy firewall configurator for Linux

The firewall builder module consists of a few puppet functions, and it makes use of "ipset" to generate "itpables" rules.
The firewall configuration is declared in hiera, it fetches the data from multiple sources, such as PuppetDB, or static lists, or it can lookup for an array in hiera.

I and my colleagues are two DevOps Engineers at GÈANT association. GÉANT is the leading collaboration on network and related infrastructure and services for the benefit of research and education.
We deal with a broad range of technologies and Puppet is the core tool to build and cope with our infrastructure. I'm also a member of Voxpupuli community.
