nfnl_osf - OS fingerprint loader utility
nfnl_osf -f fingerprints [ -d ]
The nfnl_osf utility allows to load a set of operating system signatures into the kernel for later matching against using iptables' osf match.
-f fingerprints Read signatures from file fingerprints. -d Instead of adding the signatures from fingerprints into the kernel, remove them.
Exit status is 0 if command succeeded, otherwise a negative return code indicates the type of error which happened: -1 Illegal arguments passed, fingerprints file not readable or failure in netlink communication. -ENOENT Fingerprints file not specified. -EINVAL Netlink handle initialization failed or fingerprints file format invalid.
An up to date set of operating system signatures can be downloaded from http://www.openbsd.org/cgi-bin/cvsweb/src/etc/pf.os .
