We run a couple of automated
scans to help you access a
module's quality. Each module is
given a score based on how well
the author has formatted their
code and documentation and
modules are also checked for
malware using VirusTotal.

is for guidance only and neither of
these methods should be considered
an endorsement by Puppet.

This module generates granular iptables rules to restrict access to Amazon Web Services.


Create an ipset that contains specific AWS IP prefixes

aws_firewall::ipset { 'ap-south-1-s3':
  regions  => ['ap-south-1'],
  services => ['S3'],

Create an ipset-based iptables rule

aws_firewall::rule::ipset { '200 Allow access to S3 in us-east-1':
  ipset => 'ap-south-1-s3',

Create an iptables rule to allow access to EC2 metadata

aws_firewall::rule::metadata { '200 Allow access to EC2 instance metadata':
  uid => 'someone',


See reference


  • Only tested on RedHat-like Linux distributions
  • IPv6 prefixes are not yet supported
