IP sets are a framework inside the Linux 2.4.x and 2.6.x kernel, which can be administered by the ipset utility. Depending on the type, currently an IP set may store IP addresses, (TCP/UDP) port numbers or IP addresses with MAC addresses in a way, which ensures lightning speed when matching an entry against a set.

If you want to:

- store multiple IP addresses or port numbers and match against the collection

by iptables at one swoop;

- dynamically update iptables rules against IP addresses or ports without

performance penalty;

- express complex IP address and ports based rulesets with one single iptables

rule and benefit from the speed of IP sets

then ipset may be the proper tool for you.
