Content Protection Highwinds enables the configuration of content protection policies inside the StrikeTracker 2 console, often with just a single click. By setting policies that are enforced by the CDN, your content can only be delivered through the workflow you determine.URL SigningURL Signing is the most popular content protection product offered by Highwinds. CDN account owners publishcontent with a query string parameter token that includes an optional time-to-live (TTL). This private token can onlybe generated by the publisher and can be used to create unique publishing URLs for each end user request.URL security prevents free distribution of content outside the workflow designated by the publisher: • f an end user tampers with the URL, their request for CDN content is denied I • f a URL has a TTL in the past, end user requests for CDN content are denied I • upports optional IP address and User-Agent enforcement S • se partial URL signing to provide folder-level access to content, or groups of files using a common prefix UHTTP Referrer RestrictionHTTP Referrer Restriction is a security product that prevents CDN publishing URLs from being freely distributedon unauthorized websites (also known as hot linking or deep linking). Publishers configure one or more websitesthat end users can visit and successfully request content hosted by the CDN. When an end user request is made,Highwinds compares the HTTP Header Referrer field with the list of approved websites. If the end user is not visitingan approved website, the CDN will issue an HTTP 403 – Access Denied response.GeoblockingGeoblocking allows publishers to restrict content to end users in specified locations. The IP address of incomingrequests is checked against a current list of IP allocations. If an end user’s IP address is not found in the exclude list,they are allowed access to the content by default. The feature has both include and exclude lists which are used totarget the allowed audience. • eoblocking Granularity: ASN, Continent, Country, Region, City, Postal Code, Area Code, and DMA (US Metro G Code)HTTP Basic AuthenticationWith Basic HTTP Authentication, end users are prompted to enter login credentials that are approved by thepublisher’s web server before the media is delivered. HTTP Authentication policies are enabled and managed in theStrikeTracker 2 portal.
