This behavior identifies unwanted requests from an anonymous proxy. This and the enhanced​Proxy​Detection behavior work together and need to be included either in the same rule, or in the default one.


Sends the Enhanced Proxy Detection (Akamai-EPD) header in the forward request to determine whether the connecting IP address is an anonymous proxy. The header can contain one or more two-letter codes that indicate the IP address type detected by edge servers:

  • av for is_anonymous_vpn
  • hp for is_hosting_provider
  • pp for is_public_proxy
  • dp for is_smart_dns_proxy
  • tn for is_tor_exit_node
  • vc for is_vpn_datacentre
  • rp for is_residential_proxy
