Python-iptables is a Python project that provides bindings to the iptables C libraries in Linux.
Interoperability with iptables is achieved using the iptables C libraries (libiptc, libxtables,
and iptables extensions), not calling the iptables executable and parsing its output as most other
iptables wrapper libraries do; this makes python-iptables faster and not prone to parsing errors,
at the same time leveraging all available iptables match and target extensions without further work.
