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