mod_isolate_host

Introduction

In some environments it is desirable to isolate one or more hosts, and prevent communication with external, or even other internal domains.

Loading mod_isolate_host on a host will prevent all communication with JIDs outside of the current domain, though it is possible to configure exceptions.

Note: if you just want to prevent communication with external domains, this is possible without a plugin. See Prosody: Disabling s2s for more information.

This module was sponsored by Exa Networks.

Configuration

To isolate all hosts by default, add the module to your global modules_enabled:

modules_enabled = {
  ...
    "isolate_host";
  ...
}

Alternatively you can isolate a single host by putting a modules_enabled line under the VirtualHost directive:

VirtualHost "example.com"
modules_enabled = { "isolate_host" }

After enabling the module, you can add further options to add exceptions for the isolation:

Option Description
isolate_except_domains A list of domains to allow communication with.
isolate_except_users A list of user JIDs allowed to bypass the isolation and communicate with other domains.

Note: Admins of hosts are always allowed to communicate with other domains
