What is Input Validation?
The Input Validation Cloudlet helps strengthen your web forms against abuse or monopolization from brute force and behavioral attackers. It does this by
- validating form fields and values in incoming requests.
- limiting the number of valid form submissions and invalid attempts per user. Requests are either denied (403) or redirected (302) to a custom “penalty box” once the limit is reached.
Input Validation can inspect POST requests with a Content-Type header of
and a maximum body size of 16 KB. Valid POST requests that exceed 16 KB are not processed by
the Input Validation, but are sent forward through the network.
