This is a server security mod.

Lets say you own a server that you want Only your friends to be able to play on.
Install this mod and add all your friend's Steam IDs to the list (Whitelist.txt plain text, not yaml this time)

Now, when anyone tries to connect to your server the whitelist mod is notified:
If the player trying to join is Not on your server's whitelist they are Kicked from the server with the message you specify in BanMessage.txt
Default message is "This server is protected by the Whitelist mod."
Then they are immediately Banned from the server for a week.
That player's info is then Logged with a timestamp, the SteamID and Playername (BanLog.txt) to make it easy to look up a player's SteamID.

I understand that this mod can also be used as protection against DDOS, does it filter packets?

no, all it does is ensure that only those people that you allow on your server can join your server.

if you set a password on your server and hide it but then someone you invite to play on your server hands out the IP, port and password of your server to all their friends, it wont matter because the mod Bans them all.
