Packet Filtering Hooks

The packet filtering hooks interfaces help develop value added network solutions at the kernel level such as security (packet filtering and firewall) solutions and network address translation (NAT) solutions.

The packet filtering hooks interfaces provide the following capabilities:

Loopback packet interception also provides access to packets as they move between zones that are using a shared instance of IP. This is the default model.
