Submenu – Dynamic IP Blacklist

Dynamic IP Blacklist

Airlock Gateway can monitor IPs with bad behavior and temporarily block them. If an IP triggers a block, it will be put on a watchlist. If there are too many blocks during a certain time period from the same IP, it is added to the dynamic IP denylist for a defined period.

On this global page, all the thresholds are configured. The IP Rules tab on mappings provides more configuration options.

For each mapping, it is possible to:

  • decide whether IPs on the dynamic denylist are blocked or not.
  • decide whether blocks count toward the block threshold for an IP.
