About Network Objects

A Firepower network object can contain a host name, an IP address or a subnet address expressed in CIDR notation. Network groups are conglomerates of network objects, other network groups, individual addresses, and subnets you add to the group. Network objects and network groups are used in access rules, network policies, and NAT rules. You can create, read, update, and delete network objects and network groups using CDO.
