FortiGate Next Generation Firewall utilizes purpose-built security processors and threat intelligence security services from FortiGuard labs to deliver top-rated protection and high performance, including encrypted traffic.
This article describes the method to route ingress and egress traffic bounded to the FortiGate loopback interface in AWS VPC.
By default, the AWS VPC router will route traffic to and from FortiGate ENI (Elastic Network Interface) for only the subnet to which the ENIs are associated. Hence traffic sourced/destined to configured network interfaces will always work.
Consider the below topology. In this, traffic to/from the FortiGate loopback interface will fail.
The Fortinet Security Fabric brings together the concepts of convergence and consolidation to provide comprehensive cybersecurity protection for all users, devices, and applications and across all network edges.
