One of the most fundamental components of Linux security is the firewall.
Firewall controls incoming and outgoing network traffic based on a set of predefined rules.
These firewalls can be configured to allow or block specific types of traffic based on port number, protocol, or IP address.
Linux systems come with a built-in firewall called iptables or nftables
