An explanation of the various network endpoints for Creative Cloud.

Note:

  Typekit is now called Adobe Fonts and is included with Creative Cloud and other subscriptions. Learn more.

Introduction

This document contains lists of network endpoints for websites and specific services that are offered as part of Adobe Creative Cloud. The server and domains listed in this document must be accessible on ports 80 and 443 for the relevant applications and services to function correctly.

Note:

As Creative Cloud is a service based application built on the AWS platform we are not able to provide specific IP addresses or ranges as there are large numbers of them that vary continuously over time and region.

List of network endpoints

Adobe regularly updates the network endpoints detailed in this document. You will need the updated set of endpoints to ensure uninterupted access to the various Adobe apps and services provided to the end users in your organization.

Creative Cloud services

Creative Cloud services discussed in this document can be divided into several types:

Type

Description

Deployment

Provide access to applications and updates for installation. Example: Creative Cloud Desktop depends on deployment services to provide updates.

Licensing

Authenticates users and authorizes them to use Creative Cloud applications and Creative Cloud services. Example: Individual Creative Cloud applications use licensing services to confirm that a user is properly licensed to use installed software.

Core

Provide direct access to a Creative Cloud feature. Example: Font Syncing is provided by a core service. Core services have a dependency on Licensing  services.

Auxiliary

Provide access to optional information or guidance. Example: Adobe Help Documentation is provided by auxiliary services. Auxiliary services do not have a dependency on any other service.

The applications listed in the rightmost column of the table below are those that were known at time of publication to access these websites.

Browser-based services

Below are the top-level URLs for Adobe websites that provide access to Creative Cloud services and are accessed from a browser. The applications listed rightmost column are those that were known at time of publication to access these websites. Again, due to Creative Cloud updates, it is possible that other applications not listed also access those websites.

Creative Cloud

Service Type: Core, Auxiliary

Blocking these URLs blocks access to storage from most or all sync/store/share services, the administrative control panel for users and teams, and other facilities accessed via the Creative Cloud website. It does not block access to services such as Adobe Fonts which have their own access points. In order to block access to sync/store/share and not block access to managing user accounts, make sure that administrators are exempted from the block.

Third Party Websites

The next table is a non-exhaustive list of third party websites that may be accessed by one or more of the Creative Cloud creative applications. None of these websites are operated or controlled by Adobe, and none of the products or services available from these websites are in any way a part of the Adobe Creative Cloud offering. Links to these sites are provided to facilitate use of creative content with a third party or to gain more information about third party tools compatible with Creative Cloud. In either case they are optionally included to compliment a user’s experience with Creative Cloud.

access.imageclub.com play.google.com www.flickr.com
chrome.google.com soundcloud.com www.freedb.org
developer.apple.com subversion.tigris.org www.ietf.org
framework.zend.com twitter.com www.microsoft.com

Regional endpoints

Many of the endpoints listed in the above tables use globally defined hostnames that may resolve differently in different regions of the world. For example, the website URLs adoberevel.com and acrobat.com and adobe.com resolve to geographically specific websites www.adoberevel.com and www.acrobat.com and www.adobe.com, respectively. To be effective, firewall rules must block access to the regional endpoints as well as the globally defined endpoints.

Also, Adobe services are hosted redundantly across several different servers in different regions. These hosts are subject to change due to load. Use your operating systems NSLOOKUP command to get up-to-date information on the regional IP addresses in use.

Conclusions

Typically, in an enterprise environment, you use the Adobe Admin Console to configure services to which you want users to have access. However, there are some core services that cannot be disabled using the Admin Console. A firewall can be configured to block some of these endpoints so as to prevent access to Creative Cloud services by users. For more information, see the white paper: Controlling Access to Creative Cloud Services available for download from the Adobe.com website at http://www.adobe.com/go/cce_securedeployment. Blocking the services and websites listed in this document will not block Creative Cloud Packager access to desktop applications.

Adobe continues to provide helpful endpoint information to our customers so they may configure and manage Creative Cloud deployments to suit their internal standards. This paper will evolve over time, and it is recommended you check with Adobe Support, should you have additional questions.
