In linux kernel since version 3.10 (release Date: 2013-06-30)  
nftables is the new packet classification framework that intends to
replace the existing {ip,ip6,arp,eb}_tables infrastructure. It
provides a pseudo-state machine with an extensible instruction-set
(also known as expressions) that the userspace 'nft' utility
( uses to build the
rule-set. It also comes with the generic set infrastructure that
allows you to construct mappings between matchings and actions
for performance lookups.
