>             Project: CloudStack
>          Issue Type: Wish
>      Security Level: Public(Anyone can view this level - this is the default.) 
>          Components: Hypervisor Controller, KVM
>    Affects Versions: 4.0.0, 4.1.0
>            Reporter: Wido den Hollander
>              Labels: kvm, libvirt, security-groups
>             Fix For: Future
>
>
> The current implementation for the security groups uses a custom Python script which
applies iptable and ebtable rules to the hypervisor.
> Libvirt also supports this with network filters: http://libvirt.org/formatnwfilter.html
> It might be cleaner to do this via libvirt, but the downside is that a lot of functions
are only supported by libvirt 0.9.8 and higher.
> This might not be possible at this moment, but it might be worth a shot at a later stadium.
