Built-in External Dynamic Lists

With an active Threat Prevention license, Palo Alto Networks provides built-in IP address EDLs that you can use to protect against malicious hosts.
  • Palo Alto Networks Bulletproof IP Addresses
    —Contains IP addresses provided by bulletproof hosting providers. Because bulletproof hosting providers place few, if any, restrictions on content, attackers frequently use these services to host and distribute malicious, illegal, and unethical material.
  • Palo Alto Networks High-Risk IP Addresses
    —Contains malicious IP addresses from threat advisories issued by trusted third-party organizations. Palo Alto Networks compiles the list of threat advisories, but does not have direct evidence of the maliciousness of the IP addresses.
  • Palo Alto Networks Known Malicious IP Addresses
    —Contains IP addresses that are verified malicious based on WildFire analysis, Unit 42 research, and data gathered from telemetry (Share Threat Intelligence with Palo Alto Networks). Attackers use these IP addresses almost exclusively to distribute malware, initiate command-and-control activity, and launch attacks.
The firewall receives updates for these feeds in content updates, allowing the firewall to automatically enforce policy based on the latest threat intelligence from Palo Alto Networks. You cannot modify the contents of the built-in lists. Use them as-is (see Enforce Policy on an External Dynamic List), or create a custom external dynamic list that uses one of the lists as a source (see Configure the Firewall to Access an External Dynamic List) and exclude entries from the list as needed.
