Threat Feeds (external dynamic block lists)

This feature introduces the ability to dynamically import external block lists from an HTTP server. You can use the block lists to enforce special security requirements that your organization has. This can include long term policies to always block access to some websites or short time requirements to block access to known compromised locations. Since the lists are dynamically imported any changes made to the list are instantly imported by FortiOS. Dynamic block lists can be added to:

  • Web Filter profiles and SSL inspection exemptions.
  • DNS Filter profiles and "Source/Destination" addresses in proxy policies.

In each profile, the administrator can configure multiple external block lists.
