In order to prevent malicious users from stealing your content for profit, in addition to Access control strategies such as referer Blacklist/Whitelist, IP Blacklist/Whitelist, IP Access frequency limit, you can also protect against theft by setting advanced timestamp authentication.

After configuring timestamp and Hotlink protection Prevent hotlinking, the client needs to calculate the signature according to the configuration and carry it to the server when initiating the request, and the CDN node verifies it at the server end, and then pass continues after the verification is passed.
