SoftLayer_Network_ContentDelivery_Authentication_Address

Overview

For more details on CDN's content authentication service, see Authentication Token.

You can restrict or grant access to your content by configuring an authentication IP address or an IP block. . This configuration will affect the entire secure content of your CDN account. Configuring an authentication IP Address does not mean all of your content will be secured. You must place your content in the right directories (/media/securehttp, /media/secureflash, /media/securewm) and you have to use an authentication token. Authentication IP address validation occurs before a token is validated. Consider authentication IP as an additional way to secure your content. You can have up to 20 IP address records. If you want to block access from IP 211.37.0.0/16, you can enter "211.37." instead. IP blocks can be specified in the manner of "8bit times n".
