Application layer packet, HTTP, FTP


The use of Application layer packet classifier and optimization of bandwidth towards QoS in Linux using netfilter, iproute2 and layer-7 Filter. As seen in the statistics the huge amount of data flows through the network, so it is necessity to apply packet-filtering rules in order to control the traffic and add firewall rules. So linux-based firewalls being highly customizable and versatile are also robust, inexpensive, and reliable. Using iproute2 package with ip and tc we can control traffic. Using Layer-7 Filter we can classify packet at using regular expressions not on the regardless of the tcp port but in the ip layer data. This gives us more flexibility to catch unknown traffic, where the tunneling protocols are used to transfer the data. Thus we can save bandwidth and drop or reject unwanted traffic.
