Access Control Entry

A single entry in an Access Control List (ACL). Essentially serves as a rule, or a filter, for how the interface will (or won’t) forward traffic.

ACEs are typically processed in the order they are added to the ACL, and when a given packet is matched by the an ACE it is either forwarded or dropped, per the ACE. Any subsequent ACEs are ignored/not processed.
