Configure an Intelligent Feed on Cloud NGFW for AWS

An intelligent feed, also called an external dynamic list, is a list that you or third-parties can host on an external web server. You can specify the Intelligence Feed as the source or destination of your security rule. The NGFW checks the hosted list at hourly or daily intervals, and enforces your security rules based on the latest entries on your list, without requiring you to make any configuration changes.
  • IP List
    —Enforce policy for a list of source or destination IP addresses that emerge ad hoc by using an intelligent feed of type IP address as the source or destination address object in policy rules and configure the NGFW to deny or allow access to the IP addresses included in the list. The NGFW treats an IP List intelligent feed as an address object, and all IP addresses included are handled as one address object.
    The intelligent feed can include individual IP addresses, subnet addresses (address/mask), or range of IP addresses. In addition, the block list can include comments and special characters such as * , : , ; , #, or /. The syntax for each line in the list is
    [IP address, IP/Mask, or IP start range-IP end range] [space] [comment]
    Enter each IP address/range/subnet in a new line; URLs or domains are not supported in this list. A subnet or an IP address range, such as or, count as one IP address entry and not as multiple IP addresses. If you add comments, the comment must be on the same line as the IP address/range/subnet. The space at the end of the IP address is the delimiter that separates a comment from the IP address
    An example IP address list: 2001:db8:123:1::1 #test IPv6 address ; test internal subnet 2001:db8:123:1::/64 test internal IPv6 range
  • URL List
    —Protect your network from new sources of threat or malware using URLs. The NGFW handles an intelligent feed with URLs like a custom URL category. For more information on the formatting of URL list, see Create a Custom URL Category for Cloud NGFW on AWS.
The NGFW requires a certificate object to access the intelligent feed. For more information, see Add a Certificate to Cloud NGFW for AWS.
