Access Control by TCP Wrapper
2011/04/27
  This is the example for Access Control by TCP Wrapper.

[1] Install TCP Wrapper
[root@dlp ~]#
yum -y install tcp_wrappers
[2] Make sure if a service can be under the TCP Wrapper control or not with the following command. If it includes a link to 'libwrap', it's possible.
[root@dlp ~]#
ldd /usr/sbin/sshd | grep wrap

    libwrap.so.0 => /lib64/libwrap.so.0 (0x00002b3ff55bd000)
# this service can be under TCP Wrapper control because it includes 'libwrap'
[3] Access control by TCP Wrapper is done with '/etc/hosts.allow' and '/etc/hosts.deny'. The example below shows to set access control which allow to access to sshd from 10.0.0.0/24.
[root@dlp ~]#
vi /etc/hosts.deny


sshd: ALL


[root@dlp ~]#
vi /etc/hosts.allow


sshd: 10.0.0.
[4] For the case to allow the access to vsftpd from 'host.example.domain'.
[root@dlp ~]#
vi /etc/hosts.deny


vsftpd: ALL


[root@dlp ~]#
vi /etc/hosts.allow


vsftpd: host.example.domain
[5] For the case to allow access to all services that can be under TCP Wrapper control only from 'example.domain' and '10.0.1.0/24'.
[root@dlp ~]#
vi /etc/hosts.deny


ALL: ALL


[root@dlp ~]#
vi /etc/hosts.allow


ALL: .example.domain 10.0.1.
