Description

Provides a set of primitives for managing firewalls and associated rules.

PLEASE NOTE - The resource/providers in this cookbook are under heavy development. An attempt is being made to keep the resource simple/stupid by starting with less sophisticated firewall implementations first and refactor/vet the resource definition with each successive provider.

Requirements

Platform

  • Ubuntu

Tested on:

  • Ubuntu 10.04
  • Ubuntu 11.04

Resources/Providers

firewall

Actions

  • :enable: enable the firewall. this will make any rules that have been defined 'active'.
  • :disable: disable the firewall. drop any rules and put the node in an unprotected state.

Attribute Parameters

  • name: name attribute. arbitrary name to uniquely identify this resource
  • log_level: level of verbosity the firewall should log at. valid values are: :low, :medium, :high, :full. default is :low.

Providers

  • Chef::Provider::FirewallUfw
    • platform default: Ubuntu

Examples

# enable platform default firewall
firewall "ufw" do
  action :enable
end

# increase logging past default of 'low'
firewall "debug firewalls" do
  log_level :high
  action :enable
end

firewall_rule

Actions

  • :allow: the rule should allow incoming traffic.
  • :deny: the rule should deny incoming traffic.
  • :reject: the rule should reject incoming traffic.

Attribute Parameters

  • name: name attribute. arbitrary name to uniquely identify this firewall rule
  • protocol: valid values are: :udp, :tcp. default is all protocols
  • port: incoming port number (ie. 22 to allow inbound SSH)
  • source: ip address or subnet to filter on incoming traffic. default is 0.0.0.0/0 (ie Anywhere)
  • destination: ip address or subnet to filter on outgoing traffic.
  • dest_port: outgoing port number.
  • position: position to insert rule at. if not provided rule is inserted at the end of the rule list.
  • direction: direction of the rule. valid values are: :in, :out, default is :in
  • interface: interface to apply rule (ie. 'eth0').
  • logging: may be added to enable logging for a particular rule. valid values are: :connections, :packets. In the ufw provider, :connections logs new connections while :packets logs all packets.

Providers

  • Chef::Provider::FirewallRuleUfw
    • platform default: Ubuntu

Examples

# open standard ssh port, enable firewall
firewall_rule "ssh" do
  port 22
  action :allow
  notifies :enable, "firewall[ufw]"
end

# open standard http port to tcp traffic only; insert as first rule
firewall_rule "http" do
  port 80
  protocol :tcp
  position 1
  action :allow
end

# restrict port 13579 to 10.0.111.0/24 on eth0
firewall_rule "myapplication" do
  port 13579
  source '10.0.111.0/24'
  direction 'in'
  interface 'eth0'
  action :allow
end

firewall "ufw" do
  action :nothing
end
