Configure Security Groups
Security Groups are a way to define objects that you want to group together to protect. They can be statically defined or defined dynamically. Security Groups can be defined using some of the following objects:
- Clusters, port groups, resource pools
- Security tags, IP Sets, MAC Sets, other security groups
- Active Directory groups – If the NSX Manager is registered with Active Directory
- VMs, vNICs, Logical Switch
Grouping objects together can make the application of firewall rules that much easier and cut down on the amount of rules that need to be generated in NSX
To create a security group, navigate to Networking & Security > Service Composer > Security Groups. Click the “New Security Group” icon.
