Securing Your Redise Cloud Database

Access Control by Source IP/Subnet

The number of source IP rules that you can add depends on the Redis Cloud plan that you purchased. For example, the 1GB plan allows up to 8 source IP authentication rules. These rules can contain either IP or CIDR notation.

Source IP/Subnet

In case you require more source IP rules than your current RC plan entitles you to, you can see the different plans and the maximum number of source IP rules that they support here.

You may change your subscription at any time by going to Databases => Configuration => Edit => Access Control & Security.

Note: only account owner can upgrade/downgrade the subscription.

Securing Connection to Your Database with SSL/TLS

There is a dedicated page on this topic with steps you need to achieve this.

Redis Password

You can and should add a password for your database. In addition, it should be combined with securing your client connection using SSL/TLS. This password is purely for full access to the data in the database. There is not a role or object based security on data with Redis.

One feature often overlooked is a little eye on the right side of form field. This is if you need to see the password that is configured. Obviously you need to be logged in to even see it

AWS Security groups

This option accepts the Group Name and the AWS Account ID as input to identify the security group and secure your database.

Note: This feature is only for use when your database subscription is in Amazon Web Services and only for the rare times people run using EC2 classic as AWS recommends people use VPCs most times these days.
