    Algorithm Description

    Access URL format
    http://DomainName/md5hash/timestamp/FileName

    Algorithm description

    • timestamp: A hex timestamp in UNIX format.
    • md5hash: MD5 (custom key + file path + timestamp).

    Sample request
    http://cloud.tencent.com/8fe9b5597c809d7ace147468c7c7eadb/5e577978/test.jpg

    Note:

    When the MD5 value is calculated, if the request path is http://cloud.tencent.com/test.jpg, then the path used for MD5 calculation will be /test.jpg.

    Configuration Guide

    Parameter description

    TypeC requires the following configurations:

    Custom Authentication Key: it can contain 6 to 40 digits, uppercase and lowercase letters. It should be kept private and disclosed to only the client and server.
    Custom Validity Period: the timestamp value in the request path plus the configured validity period is compared with the current time to determine whether the request has expired; if so, a 403 error will be directly returned.

    Object

    After configuring the key, parameter name, and validity period, you can specify the authentication object as needed. The following three authentication modes are supported:

    • All files under a specified domain name need to be authenticated.
    • All files except those of a specified type need to be authenticated.
    • Only files of a specified type need to be authenticated.

    Notes:

    Cache hit rate
    If you have enabled TypeC authentication for a domain name, the signature and timestamp will be carried in the access URL path. When a CDN node caches a resource, it will automatically ignore the authentication path and thus not affect the cache hit rate.
    Origin-pull policy
    The access format of a domain name with TypeC authentication mode enabled is as follows:
    http://DomainName/md5hash/timestamp/FileName

    If no hits are found on the CDN node after successful authentication, the node will initiate an origin-pull request, in which the md5hash and timestamp will be removed from the path. The origin server does not require any configuration.
