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.
- Ubuntu 10.04
- Ubuntu 11.04
- :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.
- 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.
- platform default: Ubuntu
# 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
- :allow: the rule should allow incoming traffic.
- :deny: the rule should deny incoming traffic.
- :reject: the rule should reject incoming traffic.
- 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
- 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.
- platform default: Ubuntu
# 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
