Bug Description

Binary package hint: ufw

In an ever growing mobile world ufw should be able to apply different rules based on the network the computer is connected to.

At home I trust the network and have ports open to allow interconnectivity.
At a neighborhood cafe I may want to tighten security but allow something like ports for avahi or upnp.
At an airport I may want close everything.
This should happen automatically.
would something like this would work?

/etc/network/ufw/home.conf
/etc/network/ufw/cafe.conf
/etc/network/ufw/paranoid.conf
/etc/network/if-up.d/ufw-script-to-set-profile
/etc/network/if-down.d/ufw-script-unset-profile
