edge_​origin_​authorization


Allows the origin server to use a cookie to ensure requests from Akamai servers are genuine.

This behavior requires that you specify the cookie's domain name, so it is best to deploy within a match of the hostname. It does not work properly when the origin server accepts more than one hostname (for example, using virtual servers) that do not share the same top-level domain.
