[extensions.matching.input_matchers.ip.v3.Ip proto]

This input matcher matches IPv4 or IPv6 addresses against a list of CIDR ranges. It returns true if and only if the input IP belongs to at least one of these CIDR ranges. Internally, it uses a Level-Compressed trie, as described in the paper IP-address lookup using LC-tries by S. Nilsson and G. Karlsson. For “big” lists of IPs, this matcher is more efficient than multiple single IP matcher, that would have a linear cost.

cidr_ranges

(repeated config.core.v3.CidrRange, REQUIRED) Match if the IP belongs to any of these CIDR ranges.
