Introduction

  • The anti-leech function is based on the HTTP referer mechanism where the referer, namely an HTTP header field, is used for source tracking, source recognition and processing. You can configure a referer black list or whitelist to identify and filter visitors in order to limit access to your CDN resources.
  • Currently, the anti-leech function supports the black list or whitelist mechanism. After a visitor initiates a request for a resource, and the request arrives at a CDN node, the CDN node filters the identity of the visitor based on the preset configuration of the anti-leech black list or whitelist.
    • If the identity complies with the rules, the visitor can access the requested resource.
    • If the identity does not comply with the rules, the request is forbidden and a 403 response code is returned.

Procedure

  1. Go to Domain Namespage, select the domain name, then click Manage.
  2. On Resource Access Control > Anti-leech, click Modify.
  3. ChooseBlacklist or Whitelist, and add the IP network segment in the box below.
  4. Click Confirm.

Notes

  • This function is optional and is disabled by default.
  • You can only select one of Refer Blacklist or Refer Whitelist to edit at the same time.
  • After configuration, wildcard domain name support is added automatically. For example, if you enter a.com, all sub-domain names under *.a.com take effect.
  • You can set a null Referer field to access resources on a CDN node (that is, allowing to access the resource URL by typing the address in browser).
