You are viewing the documentation for the 1.x branch of the WebSocketBundle package which has not yet been released. Be aware that the API for this version may change before release.
Securing the WebSocket Server
Thanks to the features available in the WebSocket Server library, the bundle can be configured to provide extra security checks to block unwelcome traffic by checking the origin or IP address.
Note, it is recommended these types of checks are performed at a higher level in your application stack, such as a reverse proxy or load balancer, but these features are available for ease of use.
Restricting Allowed Origins
The bundle can be configured to only allow requests when traffic originates from a list of allowed domains.
# A list of origins allowed to connect to the websocket server, must match the value from the "Origin" header of the HTTP request.
With this configuration, only connections from
example.com will be accepted, others will be rejected.
Blocking IP Addresses
The bundle can be configured to block traffic from specified IP addresses. The configuration accepts both single addresses and network ranges in both IPv4 and IPv6 format.
# A list of IP addresses which are not allowed to connect to the websocket server, each entry can be either a single address or a CIDR range.
With this configuration, all connections from
184.108.40.206 and the
192.168.1.0/24 range will be rejected.
