Name        : ipset
Product     : Fedora 16
Version     : 6.9.1
Release     : 2.fc16
URL         : http://ipset.netfilter.org/
Summary     : Manage Linux IP sets
Description :
IP sets are a framework inside the Linux 2.4.x and 2.6.x kernel, which can be
administered by the ipset utility. Depending on the type, currently an IP set
may store IP addresses, (TCP/UDP) port numbers or IP addresses with MAC
addresses in a way, which ensures lightning speed when matching an entry
against a set.

If you want to:
 - store multiple IP addresses or port numbers and match against the collection
   by iptables at one swoop;
 - dynamically update iptables rules against IP addresses or ports without
   performance penalty;
 - express complex IP address and ports based rulesets with one single iptables
   rule and benefit from the speed of IP sets
then ipset may be the proper tool for you.
