miniOrange Laravel IP Restriction provides IP address blocking for Web applications built using Laravel Framework
Laravel IP Restriction
miniOrange Laravel IP Restriction provides IP address blocking that the prevents connection between a server or website and certain IP addresses or ranges of addresses.
To protect system assets, prevent unauthorized access, and lower the risk of attack, it often makes sense to limit user connections to a specific IP address or range of addresses. For your Laravel application, an IP address block can prevent a disruptive address from access, though a warning and/or account block may be used first. Dynamic allocation of IP addresses by ISPs can complicate incoming IP address blocking, rendering it difficult to block a specific user without blocking many IP addresses (blocks of IP address ranges), thereby creating collateral damage.
IP address blocking can be used to restrict access to or from a particular geographic area—for example, the syndication of content to a specific region. To achieve this, IP addresses are mapped to the countries they have been assigned to.
By default, your Laravel application can perform API calls from any IP address. With miniOrange solution you will be able to configure whitelisted IP addresses for your Laravel application, you can control the source IP addresses for the API calls made by your application. In this case, miniOrange solution will reject any API calls made with your application credentials from any other IP address with an error code.
You can specify the whitelisted IP addresses using a semi-colon separated list of either individual IP addresses or IP addresses ranges.
