Many people have faced the DDoS attacks and HTTP flooding. No, this is not just another tutorial on setting up nginx, but I would like to introduce my module that works as a quick filter between the bots and backend during L7 DDoS attacks, as well it allows filtering the garbage requests.
The module can do:
• To set cookies in a standard way through HTTP header Set-Cookie. After the cookies are set it redirects the user using the response code 301 and Location header.
• After the cookies are set it redirects the user using the response code 200 and HTML tag Meta refresh.
• To count the number of attempts to set the cookies and to direct the user to a specified URL after exceeding the maximum number of unsuccessful attempts.
