With Lumu public gateways you can start associating all the traffic originating from your organization with Lumu’s DNS servers for illuminating threats, attacks, and adversaries coming from your network. If you want more context on Lumu deployment scenarios and Virtual Appliances for seamless log collection, consult our documentation.
At Lumu, public gateways are how we define and group the network’s
public IP addresses. IPs are the addresses your internet service provider (ISP) assigns to your computer, server, or router which are used to forward traffic to other networks or the internet.
To add a public gateway, simply login to the
Lumu Portal and navigate to
Settings > Gateway > Add a Gateway. A form will be displayed asking for the following information in order to create a new public gateway:
The easiest way to find a device’s public IP address is by selecting the option “My Public IP” when creating the gateway, this automatically captures the public IP of the device you are connected to. You can also go to one of the following websites to obtain the public IP address:
You have the option to create gateways for a group of IPs according to geography, network segments, device, domains, critical assets, departments, or any other way that makes sense for your business.
Now that you have created a public Gateway, it is time to point your DNS to Lumu to identify the level of compromise of your organization.
