What is IP Restriction?


IP Restriction allows you to give selective access to web servers based on the client’s IP address. This setting adds an extra layer of security by allowing an administrator to limit IP address by specifying which systems should be allowed or forbidden from accessing and making requests to the server, and hence minimizes unwanted traffic.

There are numerous requests submitted to web servers on a regular basis, and there are numerous reasons to maintain web services secure. We can handle the requests that come to the server with IP address restrictions. IP restriction monitors network traffic and, if it suspects a request coming from a specific IP address is suspicious, it will either limit IP address from accessing your web service or notify you to limit IP address access.

Benefits

How does IP Restriction work?


Only whitelisted IP addresses are allowed to log in successfully, according to the IP restriction. If you attempt to log in from an IP address that the system does not recognize as being whitelisted, you won't be granted access and the client would be shown an error message.

Let’s See, how this IP restriction would work in a scenario where a client of the user, who has enabled the IP Restrictions feature, wants to access the user’s server:


What is Reverse Proxy?

  • The client sends a request to the proxy link of the user’s server.
  • The IP address of the client requesting the proxy link is fetched.
  • This IP address is compared with the list of IP addresses that the user has permitted or denied access to the proxy link.
  • If the IP address is allowed for that proxy link, the client will be able to access it; else, the client would be shown a ‘403 Forbidden’ error message.



IP Restriction Use Case


Let's take an example of one of our clients belonging to an organization. He wanted to limit the access of the web applications to authorized devices only. As the client wanted to allow only authorized personnel to access the application, their IP addresses were the only ones allowed to access the proxy link. Suppose a device connected to the web wants to access our client’s application via the proxy link. The IP address of this device making the request to the proxy link is verified against the list of IP addresses allowed by the client utilizing the services of the reverse proxy product. If the IP address is allowed, the device’s request is further transferred to the client’s server, else, the device receives a 403 Forbidden error.
