A firewall that leverage AMQP workqueue ! Build by iresam for iresam !

Project Description


A simply logic, configuration based, distributable and reliable extended-firewall.

Saruman is a extended firewall (meaning firewall + dns + dhcp +intruision detection + reverse proxy) build by a former Iresam. It targets I-Resam need’s first but should be enough flexible to be used elsewhere.

It still unstable and yet brings not that much. Try at your own risks.

Most important Urls

And… we’re automatically being tested by Scrutinizer !

Technologies used

  • Saruman does require Python 3, and if possible the newest version (Python3.5 for now)
  • It does require an Celery broker : take RabbitMQ, it is good, fast and reliable.
  • It does only works on a recent linux machine : it requires nftables and iproute2 so a linux 4+ kernel would be a necessity.

Available commands

Saruman gives you three commands to manage the worker and one to run your firewall. Worker’s commands must be run in root since they manage main parts of your system. Firewall’s one doesn’t need this. The commands are:

  • saruman workers enable: start the celery workers on the machine.
  • saruman workers disable: start the celery workers on the machine.
  • saruman workers reload: restart the celery workers on the machine.
  • saruman firewall start: start the firewall

AMQP json-rpc api

Still infant


  • Tycho Tatitscheff (Nelen & Schuurmans) is the originator and main author.
  • Zest software for their releases manager and also for inspiration (copy paste of most docs).
