Security Group Firewall

  • The purpose of Security groups in StackBill CMP is to isolate traffic to virtual machines.

  • Security groups are groups of virtual machines that filter their traffic based on ingress and egress rules.

  • According to these rules, network traffic is filtered according to the IP address trying to communicate with the virtual machine.

  • The use of security groups is especially useful in zones using basic networking, since all guest VMs have their own network.

  • The KVM hypervisor is the only hypervisor that supports security groups in advanced zones.
