Implement a number of major new features to PF.
* Implement several new options to keep/modulate/synproxy state.
'pickups', 'no-pickups', and 'hash-only'. Example:
pass on $ext_if inet from any to any keep state (pickups)
* Implement a SET directive to set the default keep policy. Example:
set keep-policy keep state (pickups)
pass on $ext_if inet from any to any
* Implement the 'no state' phrase for rules, disabling any previously
specified default state policy for that rule (ala OpenBSD).
'pickups' and 'hash-only' imply no flag restrictions, no-pickups implies
flags S/SA. When pickups are enabled the state code will re-establish state
for existing TCP connections. Because the tcp options passed in the SYNs
are not known when this occurs, sequence space checking will be disabled
for those connections. The 'hash-only' mode allows pickups but disables
sequence space checking regardless of whether the SYN packets were observed
The state code no longer attempts to do sequence space checking if it has
no information on TCP options passed in SYN packets. The SYN from both
ends must be observed for sequence space checking to occur (which is what
happens by default due to flag restrictions).
It should be noted that OpenBSD defaults to 'keep state' with the equivalent
of no-pickups. The problem with this is that rebooting you router or
otherwise losing state will cause existing TCP connections to be reset,
and I do not think this is an appropriate default for PF. DragonFly does
not default to using keep state but introduces the global SET directive
to allow it to be enabled by default.
Finally, note that when using pickups or hash-only, if you desire PF to
not drop TCP connections on loss of state you need to have a few more
rules then usual to pickup on packets going the opposite direction.
For example, if you allow outgoing connections then you ALSO have to keep
state on INCOMING packets with 'flags /S' (i.e. 'established') in order
to ensure that active connections can be re-established on loss of state
by packets in either direction.
This isn't too bad since anyone using queueing has to use multiple rule
sets anyway to ensure that state is established on the proper queue.
In anycase, DragonFly now allows you to pick your poison. One global SET
directive and you can use OpenBSD's policy, or you can make your own.
