Introduction

Beginning with Shorewall 4.5.4, Shorewall allows matching packet SOURCE and/or DEST IP addresses by their corresponding country. That is done by specifying a comma-separated list of up to 15 ISO-3661 2-character Country Codes enclosed in square brackets ('[...]') and prefixed by a caret ('^'). When a single country code is given, the square brackets can be omitted.

Example - Drop email from the Anonymous Proxy and Satellite Provider networks.

/etc/shorewall/rules:

    #ACTION         SOURCE          DEST            PROTO   DPORT

    ?SECTION NEW

    DROP:info	    net:^[A1,A2]    dmz             tcp     25

Using this feature requires the GeoIP Match capability in your iptables and kernel. As of this writing, that capability requires installing xtables-addons 1.33 or later and creating a country-code database.

The Shorewall compiler uses the geoip country-code database to determine the valid set of two-character alphanumeric country codes. The location of that database is currently hard-coded in xtables-addons as /usr/share/xt_geoip/. Within that directory are two sub-directories:

  • LE -- contains the little-endian database

  • BE -- contains the big-endian database

To accomodate both big-endian and little-endian machines as well as any future ability to install the database at another location, Shorewall supports a GEOIPDIR option in shorewall.conf (5) and shorewall6.conf (5). The default value of that option is /usr/share/xt_geoip/LE.

The country codes at the time of this writing are shown in the following two sections.
