Multi-Stage Traffic Filtering
Curiefense evaluates incoming traffic in a multi-stage filtering process. An HTTP/S request which passes all security tests will be forwarded to the backend.
When constructing its security posture, it can be helpful to understand the filtering stages. They are:
- Global Filters: Curiefense assigns automatically-generated tags and user-defined tags to the requests. During this process, requests will be blocked immediately if they match a Global Filters List that has a blocking action defined for it.
- Transmission of request to the backend.
