Overview

Live provides referer validation, URL validation, and ACL to identify and filter out malicious visitors. Only visitors that meet the rules can use Live.

URL validation protects live resources from unauthorized download and theft. Referer validation uses referer blacklists/whitelists to prevent hotlinking. However, because the referer content can be forged, referer validation cannot well protect live resources. Therefore, you are advised to use URL validation. Table 1 shows the authentication mechanism of the Live service.
