The Anti-DDoS service protects public IP addresses against layer-4 to layer-7 distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks and sends alarms immediately when detecting an attack. In addition, Anti-DDoS improves the bandwidth utilization and ensures the stable running of user services.
Anti-DDoS monitors the service traffic from the Internet to public IP addresses to detect attack traffic in real time. It then scrubs attack traffic based on user-configured defense policies without interrupting service running. It also generates monitoring reports that provide visibility into the security of network traffic.
This document describes how to use application programming interfaces (APIs) to perform operations to Anti-DDoS, such as querying and updating Anti-DDoS defense policies as well as enabling and disabling Anti-DDoS. For details about all supported operations, see API Overview.
Before calling Anti-DDoS APIs, ensure that you are familiar with Anti-DDoS concepts. For details, see section "Service Overview" of the Anti-DDoS User Guide.
