By reading the security group description http://docs.openstack.org/diablo/openstack-compute/starter/content/Security_Overview-d1e2505.html (http://docs.openstack.org/diablo/open...) , I know I can use security group to block incoming traffic for a VM. But I still need to block some outgoing traffic from a VM in cloud provider level rather than use a fire wall in the VM. Are there any commands or APIs that I can use to do this? Thanks a lot.

This is handled by provider rules. Unfortunately, I don't think there is an api extension to manage them (There is one using the old ec2 admin api). You could manage them by editing the database directly. Or by creating an api extension to manage them!
