Subject Denying IP Addresses
Date Tue, 09 Sep 2008 15:11:11 GMT
Hi all, 

 

Just soliciting some feedback on how to effectively, thwart data mining on
our server.

 

We have a reactive solution when it comes to screen scraping and data mining
on Tomcat 5.5.  

We simply find the offending IP's and add them to the deny rules using the
Valve - org.apache.catalina.valves.RemoteAddrValve

>From what I understand, for changes to take effect, requires a restart of
Tomcat.

I was thinking to override the RemoteAddrValve to retrieve offending IP's
from a file as well, so as not requiring a restart everytime an offending IP
is found.  

Our applications then would be able to identify offending IP's, and based on
their own rules, add them to the file.  

 

Is this a viable strategy?

 

Thanks in advance,

Ed
