[dpdk-users] Security Block TLS

As I understand

Step 1:  Generic implementation : TCP segments need to be filtered, if
destination port numbers are fixed/known ACL can include that else just
based on IP protocol field


However if your requirement is very specific as described, packets in burst
can be read from port (see following link for example) and packets with ip
protocol as TCP  filtered for further processing


 Step 2:  Generic pattern matching : Intel Hyperscan can be integrated with
dpdk and used, it works.   https://www.hyperscan.io/

Else you can just compare and filter by hardcoded string if use case is
very specific, that is just catching client hello message and then
filtering out based on certain field value.
