I can't say that I understand quite what you're asking. Can you give a reference to wherever you read about this, or to an article or tutorial that describes "iptables rule spoofing"?

To my understanding, if you want to 'spoof' an iptables rule, you'd need to make a new, identical rule which would act like the original rule, thereby 'spoofing' it.

Does this make sense?

There are measures that can be taken in iptables to try to circumvent ip spoofing; is that what you are asking about? Its not what you asked, but its the nearest thing that I can think of.
