About this project

This free service is intended for developers and system administrators to simplify the management of access control for their own apps and systems. IPaddress.fyi organizes network data into a freely accessible JSON formatted data. Developers and system administrators can easily reference the same URL with their application. If the IP Address of a service changes, we'll make the changes for you -- but you won't have to update the references of your application or firewall. The JSON URL will always stay the same!

How To use

IPaddress.fyi is so easy to use, even your grandmother will know how to use it:

  1. Visit https://ipaddress.fyi
  2. Select the service(s) of your choice
  3. Click "Show My Integration URL"
  4. Copy the link and integrate this data with your application/firewall. Our URL will never change, but we will always keep the information up to date for you.

Contributing

We've open sourced the entire code so that we can all work together to make a beautiful and organized set of network data.

Reporting and issue or inaccuracy

If you find a problem, create an issue.

Adding a service

To add a service, you will need to submit a pull request. To do this, you will need to create a new .json file under /public/services.

Each service requires:

  1. name: The name of the service
  2. category: How this service should be categorized on the homepage
  3. source: A trusted URL where you got this information from
  4. command: What Bash command to run in order to make sure the data stays up to date
  5. If you cannot get the information through a command, then addresses is required. This should be a list of addresses that are verified to be related to the service. In a perfect world, we will want to use the command field to update data as much as possible so that we can guarantee changes can be updated without human interaction.

See the files under /public/services to see the examples that we already have.

Running your own server

If you prefer to run your own server, you will need a working PHP and MySQL environment. This is a Laravel PHP application, so after you clone it to your server of choice, you will need to install the packages using npm install and composer install from root directory of our repository. You'll need to properly configure your .env file and make sure that your application key is properly set within that file.

Manually updating addresses

If you want to update the addresses manually, we created a command to do so:

cd /path/to/the/repo/
php artisan update:ipaddresses all

Automating address updates

Use cron to automate the updates. To do this, run crontab -e and then add these lines:

# ipaddress.fyi address updates
* * * * * /usr/bin/php /path/to/the/repo/artisan schedule:run >> /dev/null 2>&1

Important notes when configuring cron:

  • Make sure you configure the correct location to artisan by replacing /pat/to/my/repo to be the correct location of where you are running the application.
  • The script above will check every minute to see if it should run (using the Laravel Scheduler). But the address update function will only run once per day at 5 AM GMT.
