Dropbox Interview Question for Software Trainees
- 0of 0 votes
I want to implement a simple HTTP Denial-of-Service protection. There are clients that can send HTTP request to a Server (i.e. a GET Method of http://10.1.1.2:8080/?clientId=7)- Patrick July 18, 2018 in United States
if in an interval of 10 seconds more then 10 request comes from a specific client the 11th, 12th.. requests will get blocked. until 10 seconds from the first request will pass and then a new time windows of 10 seconds will be open. the idea is no more than 10 requests per 10 secs.
The time frame starts on each client’s first request and ends 10 seconds later.
I want to implement this logic on the server. Which data structures/collection/custom made object would you build to implement such a logic...
it is also important to have a threats safe solution.. and performances is also a factor here..
