Whitelist Network Access
This guide will show you how to set up a whitelist to restrict access to your vector databases within a small set of IP addresses, thereby reducing the possibility of malicious attacks.
The whitelist is a global security setting and applies to every vector database you have created on Zilliz Cloud. To add whitelist entries, you can
- Click the CIDR block in Network Address on the Database Details tab of any vector database or,
- Choose Admin > Access and Security in the left navigation pane.
Note that you can add a maximum of 20 whitelisted CIDR blocks. A valid block should contain an IP address in the block and the appropriate mask length, separated by a forward slash (/), as in 192.168.1.1/20.
Zilliz Cloud allows access from all IP addresses if there is no entry in the whitelist. Once you add a CIDR block, only IP addresses in the whitelisted blocks will have access. If you add an all-zero entry (0.0.0.0/0), the effect is the same as if there were no entries.
Alternatively, you can access your databases from VPCs through AWS PrivateLink without having your traffic go through the Internet. For details, refer to Set up a Private Link.
