FFPF

http://ffpf.sourceforge.net/
Packet filter specifically designed for speed

This is a candidate for deletion: Links broken. From the maintainer "This was a research project from 2004 [1]. It is long dead now. It's probably best to remove the entry". Poppy-one (talk) 14:23, 29 July 2018 (EDT)

The fairly fast packet filter (FFPF) adds many new features to existing filtering solutions. It is designed for high speed by pushing computationally intensive tasks to the kernel or to network processors, and by minimising packet copying. Also, since it provides a richer programming language and explicit extensibility, it is more flexible than existing approaches. Using its extensibility, the language can even be used as a meta- filter to "script" together filters from other approaches.
