Securing connections to services with private service endpoints

You can configure isolated connectivity to your cloud-based services for production workloads with IBM Cloud service endpoints. When you enable IBM Cloud service endpoints in your account, you can expose a private network endpoint when you create a resource. You then connect directly to this endpoint over the IBM Cloud private network rather than the public network. Because resources that use private network endpoints don’t have an internet-routable IP address, connections to these resources are more secure.

To use service endpoints:

  1. Enable virtual routing and forwarding (VRF) in your account, if necessary, and enable the use of service endpoints.
  2. Create services that support VRF and service endpoints.

See Enabling VRF and service endpoints.
