Blocklist (Disallowlist, Denylist, or Blacklist)

A blocklist (previously referred to as a blacklist) is a list of IP addresses, domains, URLs, or email addresses that are considered as unsafe and therefore are denied access.

The opposite is a whitelist. Blocklists may be used in various areas within security architecture, like; firewalls, DNS servers, directory servers, web proxies, authentication, and API gateways.
