The Content Protection tab (AMD)

This report shows if Akamai's token-based Access Revocation service has detected marked authentication tokens in requests, and then blocked access to your Adaptive Media Delivery (AMD) content.

Token Authentication for AMD lets you set up hybrid tokens that you apply to requests of your content. During the request, Akamai verifies the token to grant access. Access Revocation lets you set up a "revocation list" of specific Token Authentication tokens to block access requests that include them. This helps to prevent token sharing between end users.

Note: This tab is only accessible in Akamai Control Center if you have Access Revocation added to your contract. Contact your account representative for more information.

Set up a filter

Use the Filters panel to customize your report. You can set these options:

Note: If you've already set filters for another report's tab in the Adaptive Media Delivery > Historical reports, those filters are automatically applied here. If this tab doesn't support one or more of those filters, you'll receive a message.

  • Date Range (Required). Click this field and determine a range of dates you want for report data. See Set the date/time range for a report for more information. You can gather data from the last 90 days.
  • CP Code (Required). A content provider (CP) code is a unique identifier we assign to you for reporting, billing, and monitoring traffic served over the Akamai network. Someone in your organization assigns a friendly name to a CP code when it's created—either via a tool in Akamai Control Center or an API, or with the help of your Akamai account representative. Click each desired CP code to include in the filter or, if you know the name or number of the desired CP code, type it in the Filter field to refine the results. You can also click All to include every CP code.
  • Delivery Option. Select the traffic security level—HTTP for non-secure traffic, or HTTPS for forms of secure traffic—those that use an Enhanced TLS Edge certificate, the Akamai shared certificate, or a Standard TLS Edge certificate.
  • Delivery Format. If you want to filter the results to a specific media format, select it here. The "Others" selection here applies to all other media formats not listed for selection.
  • IP Version. Select the applicable IP version for traffic—IPV4, IPV6, or All for both.
  • Delivery Type. Select from On Demand, Live, or All for both. ("All" is the default.)

Each individual content panel in the reporting tabs is referred to as a "widget." Several widgets make up your report in this tab.

Widget Description
Access Revocation Requests The total number of hits per second, at a specific point in time, that included any token from your revocation list.
Unique Revocation Listed Sessions The total number of requests, at a specific point in time, that included a unique revoked token from your revocation list.

Aggregation of data is affected by Chart view

If a widget offers a chart view that displays a line graph, there's a limit on the number of data points that can be plotted. This limit affects the aggregation of data revealed, based on the range of time you specify. See Widget data aggregation and Chart view for more information.
