packet filtering

packet filtering
   A process used by bridges to limit protocol-specific traffic to one segment of the network, to isolate e-mail domains, and to perform other traffic-control functions. The network administrator sets the packet-filtering specifications for each bridge.
   If a packet matches the specifications, the bridge can either accept it or reject it.
