Speaker: Duncan Roe, nfq - an ad blocker that runs on the router
The concept of running an ad blocker on the router is not new. nfq is a
particularly lightweight approach to this concept [in terms of lines of
code, scripts &c.]. This presentation concentrates on the technical
aspects of implementing nfq, with also an overview of 2 alternative systems.
nfq is based on nftables. Like the other 2 systems, it can be configured
to run on the device, instead of on the router. The presentation
includes a demonstration of nfq on the device.
About the speaker:
Duncan has had a Linux desktop since 1993. A software developer, he
first used Linux professionally in 1994. He has been hacking on Linux
