NAME

firehol-blacklist - set up a unidirectional or bidirectional blacklist

SYNOPSIS

{ blacklist | blacklist4 | blacklist6 } [ type ] [ inface device ] [ log "text" ] [ connlog "text" ] [ loglimit "text" ] [ accounting accounting_name ] ip... [ except rule-params [or rule-params [or ... ]]]

DESCRIPTION

The blacklist helper command creates a blacklist for the ip list given (which can be in quotes or not).

If the type full or all is supplied (or no type at all), a bidirectional stateless blacklist will be generated. The firewall will REJECT all traffic going to the IP addresses and DROP all traffic coming from them.

If the type stateful is supplied, a bidirectional stateful blacklist will be generated. The firewall will REJECT all traffic going to the IP addresses and DROP all traffic coming from them.

The differences between full and stateful are:

  1. stateful is resource efficient, since only the packets that initiate connections are examined. Established connections will never be re-tested against the blacklist.

  2. when using full and an ipset is updated to match the IP of an established connection, this established connection will immediately be blocked too.

If the type input or him, her, it, this, these is supplied, a unidirectional stateful blacklist will be generated. Connections can be established to such IP addresses, but the IP addresses will not be able to connect to the firewall or hosts protected by it.

Using log (log every packet), connlog (log connections once), or loglimit (log packets according to global throttling settings), the text will be logged when matching packets are found.

Using inface, the blacklist will be created on the interface device only (this includes forwarded traffic).

accounting will update the NFACCT accounting with the name given.

If the keyword except is found, then all the parameters following it are rules to match packets that should excluded from the blacklist (i.e. they are a whitelist for this blacklist). See firehol-params(5) for more details.

Blacklists must be declared before the first router or interface.

IP Lists for abuse, malware, attacks, proxies, anonymizers, etc can be downloaded with the contrib/update-ipsets.sh script. Information about the supported IP Lists can be found at FireHOL IP Lists
