- Firewall White List: You may use this white list to allow ports just to certain IP Addresses or range of IP, for example, you may allow the port 5060 only to your local IP range. This white list doesn’t avoid you get banned by fail2ban (Intrusion Detection).
- Intrusion Detection White List: This white list avoids to get banned, even when you introduce a wrong password multiple time in services like SSH, Asterisk, etc. it is recommendable to introduce your local IP range before to start any configuration in order to avoid being banned.
