Instance types and editions

WAF provides common Web protection against OWASP threats to guarantee the safety of user websites.

Instance types

WAF provides the following instance types: SLB_WAF and Cloud WAF. Different instance types vary in application scenarios and billing mode.

SLB_WAF

  • This instance type applies to scenarios that the origin server is located in a data center of Kingsoft Cloud. It supports EIP unbinding by one-click and provides back-to-origin on the private network for HTTP and HTTPS requests by using HTTP only. The default port is 80.
  • SLB_WAF must be bound to VPC. Back-to-origin takes effect only on backend servers on the same VPC. Although both private IPs and EIPs are supported, private IPs are recommended, because expired or deleted EIPs will be deleted from SLB_WAF back-to-origin records.

Cloud WAF

  • This instance type does not require the origin server to be located on Kingsoft Cloud and can protect origin servers of any public networks. Back-to-origin for HTTPS requests is performed through HTTPS by default.
  • EIP unbinding by one-click is not supported.
  • Bandwidth that exceeds the free service quota will be charged.
