    Secure Zone is a security service that can protect important information resources such as personal information more safely. The access control of the Secure Zone is applied through a strong multi border protection model that is controlled twice at the network gateway level through the Secure Zone firewall and ACG, and once at the server gateway level.

    Various features provided by the Secure Zone

    The following features are offered in the Secure Zone.

    • Enhanced security with SSL VPN: the Secure Zone provides the optimal security environment by allowing server access only through SSL VPN because it does not provide a public IP
    • Access control through the Secure Zone firewall: access control is possible by setting policies for instances created within the Secure Zone for each firewall
    • Secure Zone multi-zone configuration: the Secure Zone is provided on a zone-by-zone basis to enable multi-zone redundancy configuration
    • Support for hybrid configuration through IPsec VPN communication: service structure expansion is possible through hybrid configuration between the Secure Zone and legacy infrastructure by creating an advanced firewall

    Q. If policies are not set on the Secure Zone firewall, can I access the instances created within the Secure Zone?
    A. All external communications to the Secure Zone are blocked, and only internal access is allowed. To access Secure Zone instances, you must create a firewall in the Secure Zone Firewall menu and then create a policy that allows communication between the Service Zone or SSL VPN and the Secure Zone.

    Q. What is the scope of setting access policies to the Secure Zone instances?
    A. You can set policies for SSL VPN incoming traffic and private access between all zones of NAVER Cloud Platform except the Secure Zone.

    Q. Can I publicly use NAS between the public and the Secure Zone?
    A. While public use is possible, we recommend not storing personal information on NAS as it will not go through the firewall.
