Hi Sean, thanks for the reply.

This was a good idea! I found that it actually worked to solve our use-case. I set up FWaaS and configured a firewall group with the rules I wanted. Then I added my subnets's router_interface port to the firewall. Thank you!

Re: the general issue of doing security groups in Ironic, I was wondering if this is something that others envision eventually being the job of networking-baremetal[1]. I looked and the storyboard[2] for the project doesn't show any planned work for this, but I saw it mentioned in this presentation[3] from 2017.
