Question Capture packets from Linux Kernel TCP/IP stack

I need some help regarding to the packet capturing from Kernel TCP/IP stack. I want to capture the UDP packets that are receiving and sending from TCP/IP stack with the help of kernel module only.

I want that the module should

1. Capture the UDP packets incoming and outgoing
2. Make some required changes
3. Re-route the packets toward original destination.

please guide me by referring book, code, ideas etc.

Depending on what you mean, exactly, by 'Make some required changes', it seems probable that your requirements can be met by using netfilter/iptables. Have to tried that?
