This behavior implements the Site Shield feature, which helps prevent non-Akamai machines from contacting your origin. Your service representative periodically sends you a list of Akamai servers allowed to contact your origin, with which you establish an Access Control List on your firewall to prevent any other requests.


Identifies the hostname for the Site Shield map, available from your Akamai representative. Form an object with a value key that references the hostname, for example: "ssmap":{"value":"ss.​akamai.​net"}.
