A packet is a collection of bits, comprising data and control information--including a header, which contains the packet's source and destination IP addresses--formatted for transmission, by protocols, from one node to another.
Packet filtering is the selective passing or blocking of data packets as they pass through a network interface, specifically between the network and transport layers. The most commonly-used criteria when inspecting packets are source and destination address, source and destination port, and protocol. Filter rules specify the criteria that a packet must match and the resulting action taken.
