Fixing the Streaming Video Market

Cloudflare turns seven years old today. We launched on September 27, 2010. It was only a few days after our launch that we got our first request to support video streaming. Yet, until today, we’d avoided it. Why? Simply put: the video streaming market is screwed up. While there’s a lot of money spent on video, there are only really about 1,000 customers that do any meaningful level of streaming. This is in large part because it’s technically far too…

Introducing the Cloudflare Geo Key Manager

Cloudflare’s customers recognize that they need to protect the confidentiality and integrity of communications with their web visitors. The widely accepted solution to this problem is to use the SSL/TLS protocol to establish an encrypted HTTPS session, over which secure requests can then be sent. Eavesdropping is protected against as only those who have access to the “private key” can legitimately identify themselves to browsers and decrypt encrypted requests. Today, more than half of all traffic on the web uses…

The Architecture That Made Unmetered Mitigation Possible

When building a DDoS mitigation service it’s incredibly tempting to think that the solution is scrubbing centers or scrubbing servers. I, too, thought that was a good idea in the beginning, but experience has shown that there are serious pitfalls to this approach. A scrubbing server is a dedicated machine that receives all network traffic destined for an IP address and attempts to filter good traffic from bad. Ideally, the scrubbing server will only forward non-DDoS packets to the Internet…

The History of Email

This was adapted from a post which originally appeared on the Eager blog. Eager has now become the new Cloudflare Apps. QWERTYUIOP — Text of the first email ever sent, 1971 The ARPANET (a precursor to the Internet) was created “to help maintain U.S. technological superiority and guard against unforeseen technological advances by potential adversaries,” in other words, to avert the next Sputnik. Its purpose was to allow scientists to share the products of their work and to make it…

Tech companies targeted by sophisticated malware attack
