Summary
an explanation of how to configure and work with included malicious activity controls

Blacklist Usage

The web.config file has been modified in v1.1.3.0 to allow the blacklising of and IP address or a range of IP addresses. This will work for IPv4 or IPv6. If an incoming host matches a blacklist address then it will be restricted to read only and have no write capability.

    <!-- Addresses specified in the blacklist will not be able to write to the wiki-->
    <!-- This can be an actual ipv4 or ipv6 address with no wildcards and separated by a ','-->
    <add key="WikiBlacklistIP" value=""/>
    <!-- This is an ipv4 or ipv6 range of addresses with no wildcards. Addresses in the range are separated by '-' and ranges themselves are separated by ';'-->
    <add key="WikiBlacklistIPRange" value=""/>

Write Frequency Governor

The web.config file has been modified in v1.1.3.0 to implement a governor on the number of writes from an IP address within a specific period of time. There is a default of 60 seconds between writes if there is no entry in the web.config file. Users in the role of WikiAdmin are not subject to this limitation.

    <!-- the GovernorWriteFreq has a default value of 60 seconds-->
    <add key="GovernorWriteFreq" value="60"/>

Governor Override

The web.config file has been modified in v1.1.3.0 to implement an override for the governor to allow specific IP addresses or a range of IP addresses to not be subject to the write frequency limitations. This works for IPv4 or IPv6.

    <!-- Addresses in the GovernorOverride are able to write to the wikik without being restricted to 1 write per minute.-->
    <!-- Note: that a user in the role WikiUser or WikiAdmin is not subject to any write frequency restriction and need not be included here-->
    <!-- This can be an actual ipv4 or ipv6 address with no wildcards and separated by a ','-->
    <add key="WikiGovernorOverrideIP" value="10.0.1.25"/>
    <!-- This is an ipv4 or ipv6 range of addresses with no wildcards. Addresses in the range are separated by '-' and ranges themselves are separated by ';'-->
    <add key="WikiGovernorOverrideIPRange" value=""/>
