Can you elaborate on the dedicated firewall and private vlan. Is the firewall a virtual appliance or physical firewall appliance? (model/redundancy etc)
I take it, that a standard virtual server gets allocated 1 IP from a shared subnet? Is it possible for other people hosting machines within the shared subnet to hijack your traffic by adding your ip to their machine or hijacking the gw ip address even) or do you allocate a /31 per virtual server?
The private firewall is a virtual appliance.
We use pfsense or what ever the customer prefers.
For the layer3 security for ip changes we do a few different things.
Depending on that the subnet is used for, Some have a point to point to the server, some have a subnet and we also use arp inspection. we haven't really had any issues the way it's setup and users changing their ip doesn't cause problems... any more . We are currently working on a solution using SNMP where we have a predefined MAC database which is updated with every server deployment automatically which is associated to IP's and if anything doesn't match it will shut the servers port. We have used a configuration where we have static arp with learning disabled on the switch, this works perfectly and we have it running on 2 /24 subnets
If you have any other questions please feel free to shoot me an email as I am not on here to often.
