Integrating load balancing service with security groups for IP whitelisting

Customers require IP whitelisting on their load balancer to restrict access to their application. It would be good to have the new load balancing service integrate with the security group.

    Hello Chuan,

    To clarify further, the presumption here is that you are looking to restrict access to load balancer VIP by select white-listed source IPs. Is that understanding correct?

    Assuming Yes, how many such source IPs you expect to list in your policy definition?

    Hi Deepak

    Mostly two IPs need to be on white-listed, hopefully at least 5 IPs. If Security Group could select the Bluemix load balancer, this is great.
