ferm is a tool to maintain and setup complicated firewall rules. It helps reduce the tedious task of carefully inserting rules and chains, so the firewall administrator can spend more time on developing good rules, and less time on the implementation of those rules. The preferred kernel interface, such as ipchains and iptables, executes these rules in one pass. They can also be split into different files and loaded at will.
