IP Block List Feeds

L0 Member

We're looking to add a dynamic block list rather than manually blocking bad IP's as we find them.  I understand that Palo Alto comes with one or more of these feeds, do we know how often they are updated?

Asking for a friend.

Hi @MNP-Helpdesk ,


The built-in EDLs are updated via content updates.  https://docs.paloaltonetworks.com/pan-os/9-1/pan-os-admin/policy/use-an-external-dynamic-list-in-pol...


The Applications and Threats are updated every few days, but I don't know if any EDL updates are included with each one.


The URL above also has a link on how to build your own custom EDLs.  This is a very cool site -> http://opendbl.net/ but I cannot vouch for it.  You could also build your own internal web server.  Some customers use MineMeld, which is an open source tool.  https://www.paloaltonetworks.com/products/secure-the-network/subscriptions/minemeld

I've been using the edl's for a long time. I just use what Palo Alto has as its only a small portion of your security posture. Make sure to enable everything else, wildfire, AV, Threat, etc.
