'fwsnort' translates snort rules into an equivalent iptables ruleset. By using the iptables string match module, fwsnort detects application layer signatures which exist in many snort rules. It adds a --hex-string option to iptables, which lets users directly input snort rules that contain hex characters into iptables rulesets without modification. 'fwsnort' also uses the IPTables::Parse Perl module to (optionally) restrict the snort rule translation to only those rules that specify traffic that could potentially be allowed through an existing iptables policy.
