netfilter.org says thanks
You may not know, but I used to contribute to the Linux packet filtering subsystem called Netfilter: I primarily worked on transparent proxying, the technology needed for our proxy based firewall/gateway product, Zorp. If I remember correctly, we completely revamped that thing about 3 times, until it got integrated into the kernel.
Because of my Netfilter work and my affiliation with BalaBit, BalaBit has been a sponsor of Netfilter Workshop, the annual gathering for Netfilter developers. This is a very enjoyable occassion, at least I do enjoy meeting with guys like Patrick McHardy, David Miller, Harald Welte and the others. I’ve learned a lot from them.
I was told that because of our past support BalaBit got included into the “Thanks” section of netfilter.org, I’m proud of being mentioned there, being a (small) part of something that is deployed on the Internet in such great numbers is a good feeling.
