Description

testcookie-nginx-module is a simple robot mitigation module using cookie based challenge/response technique.

Challenge cookies can be set using different methods:

Simple mode

Javascript mode

To prevent automatic parsing, challenge cookie value can be encrypted with AES-128 in CBC mode using custom/random key and iv, and then decrypted at client side with JavaScript using SlowAES.

If you need Captcha or Flash, check testcookie-flash-processor for extension example.
