The BIG-IP WAF system has an IP geolocation feature that identifies the origin of traffic at country-level using a database of IPv4 and IPv6 addresses.
In addition to helping users interpret violation incidents and trends, with this data, user can block or allow access to an application based on the geographic origin of the traffic, blacklisting and whitelisting the IP addresses. The feature geolocation is used to block access requests from a particular country.
The following is an example to block traffic form multiple countries:
"disallowed-geolocations" : [ { "countryName" : "American Samoa" }, { "countryName" : "Algeria" }, { "countryName" : "Albania" } ]
