How to Allow IP addresses to Bypass Mitigation for DDoS Routed Services


We describe how to allowlist (formerly known as whitelist) source IP addresses to prevent Silverline Routed DDoS services from mitigating / blocking them.

  • Source IP addresses are allowed as exceptions from being potentially blocked by Silverline.
  • Even if the client attached to a allowlisted IP address is marked as suspicious, the client is allowed to bypass the DDoS mitigation logic and permitted to transit to your servers.
  • You can allow IP network prefixes to bypass mitigations.
  • NOTE: The AllowList functionality in portal does not bypass your GRE firewall rules. Firewall ACLs run independently of the mitigation filters and are under customer control.

  • An example of a prefix would be: - This would block any address in the range -
