OCI Network Firewall Service is now availabile

Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Network Firewall is a next-generation managed network firewall and intrusion detection and prevention service for your Oracle Cloud Infrastructure virtual cloud network (VCN), powered by Palo Alto Networks®.

Network Firewall features include:

Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Network Firewall provides the following security features:

  • Stateful network filtering: Create stateful network filtering rules that allow or deny network traffic based on source IP (IPv4 and IPv6), destination IP (IPv4 and IPv6), port, and protocol.
  • Custom URL and FQDN filtering : Restrict ingress and egress traffic to a specified list of fully qualified domain names (FQDNs), including wild cards and custom URLs.
  • Intrusion Detection and Prevention (IDPS): Monitor your network for malicious activity. Log information, report, or block the activity.
  • SSL inspection: Decrypt and inspect TLS-encrypted traffic with ESNI support for security vulnerabilities. Encrypted Server Name Indication (ESNI) is a TLSv1.3 extension that encrypts the Server Name Indication (SNI) in the TLS handshake.
  • Inter-VCN traffic inspection: Route traffic between two VCNs through a network firewall.
