IP Whitelisting

In this article, we will cover the process of whitelisting your IP address for Cashfree Payments to allow incoming requests from your system.

Whitelist Your IP Address

Whitelisting the IP address or generating a public key provides a layer of authentication. These cybersecurity techniques prevent anonymous or unknown disbursement requests and allow only verified requests. Your IP address needs to be whitelisted in the Cashfree Payments production server or it rejects all incoming requests. Note that only the production environment needs approval from Cashfree Payments and not for the test environment.

Follow the instructions below to whitelist your IP:

  1. From the Verification dashboard, click Developers from the navigation pane > Two-Factor Authentication from the Verification Suite card.
  2. Choose IP Whitelist from the Select 2FA Method drop-down.
  3. Click Add IP Address.
  4. Enter the IP address you want to whitelist in the respective field and click Add IP Address to save the details. Note that the IPv4 has to be whitelisted, and not IPv6. The whitelisted IPs are displayed in the grid as shown below. You can whitelist a maximum of 10 IPs.
