Dynamic DNS Support

Does anyone know if/when Palo Alto will integrate dynamic dns into its devices?  This would be a tremendous help for devices that are using DHCP from service providers.

Re: Dynamic DNS Support

You can already today use FQDN's even if I wouldnt recommend this (because this way if the attacker can alter your DNS then they will be able to alter your firewall rules aswell regarding srcip and/or dstip.

You can also use dynamic address objects and "feed" your PA devices with info (from the DHCP server for example) of which device has which ip (mainly used for VMware but also handy in other situations aswell).

Like what you see?
