Abstract

Use NGINX as a reverse proxy to the Cortex XSIAM engines.

NGINX can act as a reverse proxy that sits between internal applications and external clients, forwarding client requests to the appropriate application. Using NGINX as a reverse proxy in front of the engine enables you to provide network segmentation where the proxy can be put on a public subnet (DMZ) while the engine can be on a private subnet, only accepting traffic from the proxy. Additionally, NGINX provides a number of advanced load balancing and acceleration features that you can utilize.

If you want to use an engine (d1) through the reverse proxy, you need to modify EngineURLs in the d1.conf file to point to the host and port the NGINX server is listening on.
