The service provides a programmable XML interface for detecting web visitors routine requests through any type of proxy server, which often indicates attempts to circumvent blocks on traffic from particular locations or addresses. This fraud detection function alerts e-commerce applications to traffic with origins masked, helping to avoid costly chargebacks and other bad results of online frauds.
API methods support submission of a requesting IP address discovered in the header of an HTTP request. The service then checks on the authenticity of that address and returns status information indicating whether or not it involves redirection through a proxy, based on a database updated hourly of proxy IPs.
The following is a list of sample source code snippets that matched your search term. Source code snippets are chunks of source code that were found out on the Web that you can cut and paste into your own source code. Whereas most of the sample source code we've curated for our directory is for consuming APIs, we occasionally find something interesting on the API provider side of things. If you know of some sample source code that would be of interest to the ProgrammableWeb community, we'd like to know about it.
