Create a GeoIP Feed

You can create GeoIP feeds from the GeoIP page.

Before You Begin
  • You must have Juniper ATP Cloud account. Make sure you configure the necessary steps for Juniper ATP Cloud before creating a GeoIP feed. See Juniper Advanced Threat Prevention Cloud Installation Overview for more details.

  • GeoIP filtering is a useful tool when you are experiencing certain types of attacks, such as DDoS from specific geographical locations.

  • If you are using Juniper ATP Cloud, you must select your GeoIP feed as the source or destination of a security policy rule to apply it.

To create a GeoIP feed:

  1. Select Shared Services > Objects > GeoIP.

    The GeoIP page appears.

  2. Click the add icon (+).

    The Create GeoIP page appears.

  3. Complete the configuration according to the guidelines provided in and Create a GeoIP Feed.
  4. Click OK to save the changes. If you want to discard your changes, click Cancel instead.

    A new GeoIP feed is created and listed as a dynamic address group entry on the Shared Services > Objects > Addresses page. You can use this GeoIP feed as address group to specify the source or destination address while creating security policy rules.

    Table 1: Fields on the Create GeoIP Page




    Enter a unique name containing maximum 63 characters without spaces. The name must begin with an alphanumeric character and can contain special characters such as colons, periods, dashes, and underscores.


    Enter a description that contains alphanumeric characters and special characters (excluding ampersand, lesser than (<) and greater than (>), and newline ()). The maximum length is 900 characters.


    Select the check box beside the countries in the Available list and click the >icon to move to the Selected list. The countries in the Selected list are included in the feed to take action according to their threat level. You can use the search at the top of each column to search for the listed countries.
