FreeBSD Network Stack Virtualization Project

The FreeBSD network stack virtualization project aims at extending the FreeBSD kernel to maintain multiple independent instances of networking state. This will allow for complete networking independence between jails on a system, including giving each jail its own firewall, virtual network interfaces, rate limiting, routing tables, and IPSEC configuration. This project is focused at virtualizing the networking stack in FreeBSD -CURRENT.
