Python program to determine if the given IP Address is Public or Private using ipaddress module

  • Last Updated : 10 Jul, 2020


Given a Classful IP Address the task is to find whether it is Public or Private.

Private IP address of a system is the IP address which is used to communicate within the same network. Using private IP data or information can be sent or received within the same network.

Public IP address of a system is the IP address which is used to communicate outside the network. Public IP address is basically assigned by the ISP (Internet Service Provider).

Examples:

Input : 17.5.7.8
Output : Public

Input : 172.16.0.10
Output : Private

To implement it, we will use is_private method of ipaddress module of Python 3.3 .




# importing ip_address from 
# ip address module
from ipaddress import ip_address
   
def IPAddress(IP: str) -> str:
    return "Private" if (ip_address(IP).is_private) else "Public"
     
if __name__ == '__main__'
   
    # Public IP
    print(IPAddress('17.5.7.8'))  
  
    # Private IP
    print(IPAddress('172.16.0.10'))

Output :

Public
Private
