Difference between inbound and outbound direction

Difference between inbound and outbound direction

I noticed that some IP prototypes have a direction of inbound (spamhaus) while others are outbound (ransomwaretracker).  What is the difference with respect to being able to use them in feeds for EDLs?

 

Thanks,

Re: Difference between inbound and outbound direction

Hi @deanm,

IP indicators, and only IP indicators, have an attribute called direction. This is used to specify if the IP is typically seen as a source of a session (direction = inbound) or as a destination ( ). This could be helpful when definining security policies to match IPs on sources or destination.

 

But if you prefer you can also ignore this attribute, as always with MineMeld it's up to you.
