The Client Access Control (CAC) API helps you manage access between your web assets and the edge servers on the Akamai network. With this API you can retrieve information about the CIDR blocks that currently connect your content to the Akamai network. In addition, when Akamai updates the CIDR blocks used for access, this API allows you to review the changes and send an acknowledgement to Akamai once you update your Access Control List (ACL).
Client Access Control currently only supports IPv4 CIDR blocks.
Who should use this API
Use this API as part of an automated system to dynamically synchronize your access control lists with your connection to the Akamai network. With this API, you can view the current list of CIDR blocks, and review
and acknowledge updates to the CIDR block list proposed by Akamai.
You can also access this functionally from Akamai Control Center by selecting ☰ > Configure > Client Access Control CIDR Lists.
