Windows Filtering Platform

About Windows Filtering Platform, TDI Filter Drivers

The Windows Filtering Platform allows driver developers to filter networking events for both stream and packets and they flow up and down the windows networking stack. Microsoft TDI device drivers are a legacy mechanism to filter networking traffic above the packet level. TDI filters were once the prefered mechanism for intercepting layer 4 traffic for TCP streams and UDP messages. However, the Windows Filtering Platform should now be used to intercept network connections, transform network streams, and process network packets for windows driver developers.

There are no good books on windows networking drivers, or windows filtering platform drivers. However, the Windows® Internals Fifth Edition offers an solid section on the windows networking stack.
