The inet table is available from Linux kernel 3.14 and allow to use a dual-stack IPv4/IPv6 table. There is mostly a single change compared to previous ruleset which is the inet keyword.

table inet filter {
        chain input {
                 type filter hook input priority 0;

                 # accept any localhost traffic
                 iif lo accept

                 # accept traffic originated from us
                 ct state established,related accept

                 # accept neighbour discovery otherwise connectivity breaks
                 ip6 nexthdr icmpv6 icmpv6 type { nd-neighbor-solicit, echo-request, nd-router-advert, nd-neighbor-advert } accept

                 # count and drop any other traffic
                 counter drop
        }
}
