This page offers some light and data about current nftables adoption in the wider community. As you probably know, the focus of the Netfilter project and community is in replacing the iptables framework with nftables, adding brand new features and refreshing some workflows along the way.

Lots of upstream projects use iptables to handle NAT, filtering, mangling or other networking stuff. Here, the info we know about them, their relationship with nftables and the possibilities for them to migrate to nftables.

Cases

Known cases and examples we could heard of. TODO: extend with more current data.

All major Linux distributions contains the nftables framework ready to use. Check Nftables from distributions.
