FWPS_INCOMING_METADATA_VALUES0 structure

The FWPS_INCOMING_METADATA_VALUES0 structure defines metadata values that the filter engine passes to a callout's classifyFn callout function.

Note  FWPS_INCOMING_METADATA_VALUES0 is a specific version of FWPS_INCOMING_METADATA_VALUES. See WFP Version-Independent Names and Targeting Specific Versions of Windows for more information.

Members

currentMetadataValues

A UINT32 value that contains a bitwise OR of a combination of Metadata Field Identifiers that specify which metadata values are set in the structure.

flags

Used internally by the filter engine. Callout drivers should ignore this member.

reserved

Reserved for system use. Callout drivers should ignore this member.

discardMetadata

An FWPS_DISCARD_METADATA0 structure that describes the reason why the data was discarded. This member contains valid data only if the FWPS_METADATA_FIELD_DISCARD_REASON flag is set in the currentMetadataValues member.

flowHandle

A handle for the data flow. This member contains valid data only if the FWPS_METADATA_FIELD_FLOW_HANDLE flag is set in the currentMetadataValues member.

ipHeaderSize

The offset, in bytes, of the IP header.

On inbound paths, ipHeaderSize, when used in conjunction with the transportHeaderSize member, specifies the number of bytes to retreat from the data offset location to the beginning of the IP header.

On the following inbound ICMP error layers, ipHeaderSize alone specifies the total number of bytes to retreat from the data offset to the beginning of the IP header:

FWPS_LAYER_INBOUND_ICMP_ERROR_V4

FWPS_LAYER_INBOUND_ICMP_ERROR_V6

FWPS_LAYER_INBOUND_ICMP_ERROR_V4_DISCARD

FWPS_LAYER_INBOUND_ICMP_ERROR_V6_DISCARD

On outbound paths, if ipHeaderSize is greater than zero, it specifies the number of bytes to advance from the data offset location to the end of the IP header.

This member is not applicable to the outbound path at the following layers:

FWPS_LAYER_DATAGRAM_DATA_V4

FWPS_LAYER_DATAGRAM_DATA_V6

FWPS_LAYER_DATAGRAM_DATA_V4_DISCARD

FWPS_LAYER_DATAGRAM_DATA_V6_DISCARD

This member contains valid data only if the FWPS_METADATA_FIELD_IP_HEADER_SIZE flag is set in the currentMetadataValues member.

transportHeaderSize

The offset or size, in bytes, of the transport header.

On inbound paths, transportHeaderSize specifies the number of bytes to retreat from the data offset location to the end of the transport header.

On the following inbound ICMP error layers, transportHeaderSize specifies the size of the ICMP header:

FWPS_LAYER_INBOUND_ICMP_ERROR_V6

FWPS_LAYER_INBOUND_ICMP_ERROR_V4_DISCARD

FWPS_LAYER_INBOUND_ICMP_ERROR_V6_DISCARD

This flag indicates that an NBL that was seen once at ingress has been distributed into multiple NBLs, each of which is destined to a different VM, and the first NBL of this distribution has already been indicated to your callout driver.

The first NBL of the distributed group will not have this flag set. All subsequent NBLs for the group will have this flag set.

For the purpose of injecting, your callout driver should clone the NBL, block and absorb the original packet, and clear the FWPS_RIGHT_ACTION_WRITE flag for the first indication. Then modify the clone and inject it into the ingress path.

For all subsequent indications, you should block and absorb the original packet and clear the FWPS_RIGHT_ACTION_WRITE flag for the clone. When the injected clone comes out of ingress, it will then be redistributed again, and all indications will have an injection state of FWPS_PACKET_INJECTED_BY_SELF or FWPS_PACKET_PREVIOUSLY_INJECTED_BY_SELF.

Remarks

The filter engine passes a pointer to an FWPS_INCOMING_METADATA_VALUES0 structure to a callout's classifyFn callout function. The metadata values contained in the structure are not processed by the filter engine but are supplied to a callout's classifyFn callout function to provide additional information.

A callout driver can use the following macro to test if a specific metadata value is present in an FWPS_INCOMING_METADATA_VALUES0 structure:


FWPS_IS_METADATA_FIELD_PRESENT(metadataValues, metadataField)

metadataValues

A pointer to an FWPS_INCOMING_METADATA_VALUES0 structure.

metadataField

The metadata field identifier for the metadata value being tested. See Metadata Field Identifiers for a list of the metadata field identifiers.

If the FWPS_METADATA_FIELD_PACKET_DIRECTION metadata value is present in an FWPS_INCOMING_METADATA_VALUES0 structure, the packetDirection member specifies whether the packet was inbound or outbound during a reauthorization classify operation. Otherwise, the FWPS_METADATA_FIELD_PACKET_DIRECTION metadata value is not present.

The callout driver must follow these guidelines when it inspects the packet:

  • At the ALE connect or receive/accept layers, the callout driver should not assume that the packet contains a valid IP header if packetDirection is set to FWP_DIRECTION_OUTBOUND and the FWPS_METADATA_FIELD_PACKET_DIRECTION metadata value is present.
  • At the ALE connect layer, if the FWPS_METADATA_FIELD_PACKET_DIRECTION metadata value is not present, the callout driver should assume a packet direction of FWP_DIRECTION_OUTBOUND.
  • At the ALE receive/accept layer, if the FWPS_METADATA_FIELD_PACKET_DIRECTION metadata value is not present, the callout driver should assume a packet direction of FWP_DIRECTION_INBOUND.
