Oracle Dyn API Security blocks malicious activity, allowing only authorized traffic to pass through seamlessly. Oracle Dyn API Security is designed to work with both authenticated and unauthenticated API calls and provides protection against dictionary attacks, Layer 3/4/7 DDoS attacks, API malicious usage, automated API scraping, and API hijacking. How it Works 1. An Oracle Dyn library integrates with the client's application (mobile apps, etc.). 2. A unique hash is generated by the Oracle Dyn library. 3. Each API call contains an Oracle Dyn header with the unique hash that guarantees that the API call originated from a friendly, legitimate source. 4. API calls that do not have the unique hash are blocked at the edge. The Oracle Dyn global business unit (GBU) helps companies build and operate a secure, intelligent cloud edge. Our services help customers operate resilient, secure, and high-performance sites and applications via fully managed DNS and Web Application Security services. More than 3,500 customers rely on Oracle Dyn's edge services, including preeminent digital brands such as Netflix, Twitter, CNBC and LinkedIn. For more information, visit
