WAF

WAF

The nuu:bit Cyber Security solution is the nuu:bit Cybersecurity suite. The Web Application Firewall or WAF is a customer managed WAF which protects a site from attacks. The WAF is an easy to deploy and easy to manage solution.

WAF

The nuu:bit’s WAF (Web Application Firewall) contains three key differentiators:

  • Customer managed – which provides higher security
  • Filters Get & Posts requests
  • Self-learning feature to enable an easy way for a customer to generate custom WAF rules

The nuu:bit Cyber Security solution is robust solution because it does not rely on a signature base like an antivirus and most WAFs, thus cannot be circumvented by an “unknown” attack pattern. The nuu:bit Cyber Security solution has a user-defined rulesets built into the platform in addition to the core ruleset which is extensible. The The nuu:bit Cyber Security solution solution can check different values, such as URLs, request parameters, cookies, headers, or the POST body. Automatic whitelist creation makes it easy deploy the firewall upstream and rule out 100 percent of false positives.

The nuu:bit Cyber Security solution has analytics to quickly view WAF events, event heat map to identify the attacker’s location as well as detailed event logs.

Static Caching

Static Caching

At nuu:bit, we offer a global CDN caching platform which allows our customers to define the following:

  • Which content should be cached on the CDN cache, and for how long
  • What browser caching setting should apply
  • How to handle URL query string parameters and HTTP cookies

Caching static content (like images, CSS, JS and video files) on what was known as the edge caching has been around for a while and remains to be a stable and a very efficient technique to improve the performance of a website or mobile application.

Our CDN global caching system supports highly custom caching rules. These rules are a set of parameters that change the caching behavior of one or more URLs that match a pattern, specified as either a wildcard expression or a Perl-compatible regular expression.

One of the technologies nuu:bit uses is Varnish, which allows our customers to directly use domain-specific language called Varnish Configuration Language, or VCL for short. This will allow for complete and total custom caching.

FaaS

FaaS

The serverless Distributed Compute Environment offering is the Functions as a Service or FaaS solution. This solution offers clear advantages:

  • Faster App Development – Develop applications faster at the same time reducing the size of code which could contain bugs that are common in monolithic applications.
  • Enabling quick, incremental code changes – This approach provides for a loose coupling of small software components also improves the odds that developers will be able to change one service without breaking other services that depend on it.
  • Resiliency – A fully distributed services allow for isolated changes without impacting the system as a whole.
  • Cost – Much less cost for FaaS services vs using a full cloud server instance
  • Scaling – As the App logic is distributed, the system can scale as it does not have a single monolithic point that would prevent the system from expanding.

Currently we offer support for two languages, VCL and Lua.

Custom VCL

One of the technologies nuu:bit uses is Varnish, which allows our customers to directly use a domain-specific language called Varnish Configuration Language, or VCL for short. This allows some application logic is executed on when a request is made.

Lua

Lua is a powerful programming language, and nuu:bit’s global CDN platform allows you to run custom Lua code globally, closing the gap between your end-users and expected a response to the last mile.

DSA

DSA

The nuu:bit Dynamic Site and Content Acceleration feature increase performance for a web property that generates content at origin or application APIs for mobile App.

  • Up to 200% improvement for HTTP traffic and 600% for HTTPS requests
  • Higher level of origin availability comparing to direct origin access or asymmetric DSA solutions

We use Symmetric Dynamic Site Acceleration by default, which means minimum of two nuu:bit locations are involved in handling a request for PoP to PoP communication. The first location is closest to the end user (last-mile location) and the other closest to the customer origin (first-mile location). Additional intermedia nuu:bit locations can be involved if the network routing process detects a more optimal way between first- and last-mile locations.

QUIC

QUIC

nuu:bit is always incorporating the best-in-class technologies. Eliminating latency at every step provides the nuu:bit the ability to consistently outperform other CDN providers. This is why we were an early adopter of Google’s new network transport protocol called QUIC.

Less is more with QUIC. The zero RTT QUIC combines the best features of UDP and TCP with modern security tools. The key difference between the typical secure TCP connection vs. QUIC is that a browser can immediately communicate to the CDN edge using zero RTT TLS. It is also more reliable than a pure UDP as QUIC also introduces features such as congestion control and automatic re-transmission.

End-users benefit from the following:

  • 30% of overall page load time improvement
  • 30% faster due to less rebuffering for video streaming than over the standard TCP
  • Zero RTT SSL handshake allows for faster connection times

QUIC protocol is supported by Chrome, Chromium and Opera browsers. For more information about QUIC please find the following pages at the IETF.
